we are a french couple planning to travel by tandem bike this summer and stop from time to time to perform circus shows ( aerial silk-kind of acrobatics in curtains-juggling and clowning). We are looking for pieces of information about our planned itinerary (roads to avoid, good shortcuts,places to visit...) and obviously places to have a hot shower and/or camp for a night. We will cycle from the very beginning of December to mid january for a loop from Christchurch to Christchurch, passing through Burkes Pass, Alexandra, Stewart Island, Te Anau, Queenstown (for christmas), Wanaka, Greymouth, Spring Junction and Amberley. If you could please have a look at our planned itinerary and share pieces of information about the areas you know about that would be great. If you are on our route and have a nice tree with a big branch 5-8 meters high in your garden or town, it would be a pleasure to distract you with our show in exchange of camping place...
If by chance you also plan to travel in the same area at the same time, we would be glad to have another cycling companion!
Cheers, Thomas and Emilie.
