W.O.R.D. does America - meet the crew

Ash flying the flag

For the next two months this motley crew that calls Wellington home are on an adventure in the Southwest of America. Riding bikes, eating Mexican food, going big, and maybe coming home. We'll take you along for the journey by giving you semi regular updates right here. Here's the lineup:

The Ranger: Self proclaimed athlete, first time out of New Zealand, makes a mean stirfry.

Mushi: Tree surgeon in search of a girl called Candy. Enough said.

Ash: The American, baker of goodies, in search of some sweet air time.

Together these three are part of a super elite and secret group: W.O.R.D (Wellington Offroad Riding Department). Other members including Whisky Mike and Sifter who will also be joining as special guests along the way.

The (loose) plan:

Phoenix-Sedona-Flagstaff-Vegas-Moab-Durango-Crested Butte-Breckenridge-Denver-Boulder-Grand Junction-Fruita-Tahoe-Mammoth-San Fran-Santa Cruz

The prelude:

Mushi is in Europe at the moment attempting to get fit for the trip. Ash is heading on a plane to America today to prepare her folks for the boys' arrival, and the Ranger is naturally fit so he'll wait till mid next week to make the journey.

The States here we come!!!!
