This winter (summer in southern hemisphere) I'd like to go to either Australia or New Zealand to do a ride. I don't want to ride by myself and I've looked at a number of the tour companies. The tour companies tend to be a little expensive and, even worse, the mileage is pretty low. Most of the tour companies only cover 40 miles/day. I want to do 60-90 miles/day. What I'd love to find is the Southern Hemisphere equivalent of Cycle Oregon, Ride the Rockies, RAGBRAI, etc. Do such events exist?
