An intrepid team set out in early October led by Sam Mukhtar, to tackle the  Round the Eyre Mountains cycle trail at Queenstown.
As the first team to start in the season, they had some cold weather to cope with and plenty of snowy mountain views.
But the mission was accomplished and great comradeship enjoyed by all.
