Three cyclists, three seats, one bicycle: a summer charity ride with a difference. A Christchurch doctor and two friends - all of them cycling enthusiasts - are raising money for charity by pedaling a three-seater (triplet) tandem bicycle from Auckland to Christchurch before Christmas.

The three friends - Christchurch doctor Richard Steane, Rotorua doctor Byrdie Johnston, and Nelson hostel owner Jimmy Griffiths set off from Auckland on November 26 on the bike that they purchased on Trade Me, aiming to arrive in Christchurch by December 15. Follow them on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Threeseater.org.nz?ref=ts&fref=ts

Along the way, they’ll be giving people the chance to bid on TradeMe for an opportunity to pedal with them. “We just love cycling on the threeseater and we would like to share the fun with more people” said Dr Steane. “Each day we shall have two cyclists on the bike, and as part of the fundraising we are inviting people to bid to join us on the third seat”. Bid for a chance to ride from Taupo to Turangi at http://www.trademe.co.nz/sports/cycling/other/auction-537554816.htm

Successful bidders can cycle for a few hours or a few minutes, depending on their preference. They can even ask to be dropped off at work or catch a lift to a local café if it roughly fits in with the route the cyclists are planning. Those who aren't keen to cycle are still invited to donate to support the fundraising ride. So pop past and check out the threeseater bike on Monday morning at Colonel Roberts Reserve at 9am.
