By Neville Peat
Summer 1981. A youngish Neville Peat Cycles from Cape Reinga in the far north to Stewart Island in the far south, on his imported 10-speed bike 'blue'. This is the story of his journey through small-town New Zealand, revisited 'a generation on', with a postscript on cycling in Antarctica.
Now, in the faster age of the personal computer and cell phone, a very different world, he has revisited many of the towns and regions, not on a bicycle but by car. In Detours - A generation on, he reflects on how small-town New Zealand is doing in a perceptive opening essay that introduces the original text.
