There has been a lot of recent media attention in Dunedin's Baldwin Street losing the world record for the steepest street in the measurement to Fford Pen Llech, in Wales. Well done to S+SNZ member Toby Stoff who is challenging the measurement technique used to topple Baldwin Street. Toby was featured on TVNZ's Seven Sharp programme where he explained his stance and has gained the support of Dunedin's mayor, Dave Cull. S+SNZ will also be supporting Toby in his quest to get Baldwin Street back up to the top.
