Rhys Lawrey - Motorcycle Adventure

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:07 pm on 10 September 2014

A British adventurer has arrived in Christchurch with his much-loved Triumph Tiger motorcycle, to embark on the New Zealand leg of his world record attempt. Twenty-three-year-old Rhys Lawrey is trying to become the youngest person to circumnavigate the globe by motorcycle, and raise money for the Prince's Trust. He left London in May with the goal of visiting 73 countries and travelling 80,000km by June next year. Rhys will spend six to seven weeks travelling through New Zealand.
