Biking Alps to Ocean Trail - by Lake Ohau

My name is Rebecca Speirs, I love exploring New Zealand landscapes and bringing a group of people together for a shared adventure – I have biked and run several long distance trails and am looking forward to riding the Old Ghost Road in early 2017.

Running the Bridge to Nowhere trail

I enjoy training for endurance events with the team at Capital Sports Performance and putting something back by trail building around Wellington. Wellington has a fantastic network of off-road trails which local enthusiasts help build and maintain.  Currently I’m working on the Mt Albert Track Links project near where I live.

I even have my own pick axe now!

And to relax I like doing some yoga along with crazy fun stuff like circus and parkour classes.

Circus class with Neil

I live in Island Bay, Wellington with my lovely partner Neil and work as a consultant business analyst.

I love walking down to the South Coast and being able to see sunsets over the South Island – never get tired of this view!

Fantastic sunset from Island Bay, Wellington across the Cook Strait to the Kaikouras
