In August 2015, Dunc Wilson became the first person to circumnavigate New Zealand on a bike. This 10,940 km journey followed one rule: cycle the closest available route to the coastline. The Big Loop candidly details Wilson's 240-day cycling adventure, through native bush, ragged coastlines, farm stations and more - demonstrating how acquainting oneself with our country is best achieved under 100 km/h.
Dunc Wilson was born in Greenwich, London. He grew up riding bikes, on a diet of summer camping holidays. He moved to New Zealand in 2008, working as Chief Online Editor for RadioLIVE. More than half a decade in Auckland only intensified his desire to get outdoors and discover the rest of the country. He is now a producer for The AM Show on Three and Magic Talk, but can often be found out tramping New Zealand's bush or sleeping in a bivvy bag in a field somewhere.
