Watch: Scenic 245km bike ride for Chopper

For the eighth year running, keen cyclists have rode the long but scenic journey from Queenstown to Invercargill to raise money for their local Rescue Helicopter.

This year 55 riders took part in the 245km ride on 18 May, leaving Queenstown at 6am, stopping at a couple of schools along the way, and finishing at the Westpac Invercargill branch at 5pm.

The eight rides to date have raised over $400,000, and you can still sponsor them.
