Our version of the Dusty Butt 1000km in 24 hours mostly shingle roads all hilly and winding. This is the summery of our first attempt on the 10th March 2007 which didn't exactly go as planned. We had two flat tyres and had to share a key for two gates in the Rainbow. That on top of BusaJim taking a passenger on the BMW and the fact most of us didn't get a decent sleep the night before because we had been riding to the start which was in Nelson slowed us to the point of not being able to finish within the 24hours. The part in this video is the 5:30am start, over the Maungatapu, through some forestry zigzagging our way to Blenheim, then up the Black Birch range to the top of Mt Altimarloch and back, (two flat tyres already) through the Molesworth in to Hanmer, through the Rainbow Station to St Arnaud where some called it a day. The rest went over the Porika and Braeburn tracks to Murchison where there was another flat tyre and my headlight was only working on high beam. At 11:40pm the rest of us called it there and rode another hour and a half back to Nelson.
