Driving a car (when are we there) you're always on the way to somewhere. On a bike, you're already there in the landscape, in the moment. And sometimes there's literally nowhere else you'd rather be. In George Lockyer's new book, The Long and Winding Aotearoa, we find him riding his Triumph Bonneville around the country, from Kaitaia to Invercargill, and seeing his often humorous take on life from under a crash helmet. On the way round our magnificent country he stops to interview some fascinating characters, all with a story to tell. We meet not just motorcyclists, but a wide variety of kiwis, from craftsmen, artists and firefighters, to rugby coaches, quakers and architects.
