Yes most definately a big bike ride. We will be on the Beemer. Basically tarmac, gravel and forest roads. Its to longer distance to be doing anything "creative" !!

Id love to join in but will up to my neck helping organise a military commemoration and reenactment at Mahia that weekend with MVCCNZ.

If that kinda thing interests you, there will be a display and hopefully a battle reenactment on the Sunday. Planning to have some tanks and amphibious vehicles on show.

Nice thought, but not very practical for the boys from the Naki (who are after all organising this).

Colin and I were talking about the ride last night and I got an email late last night saying our route across was 1000 km ! ( he must have been playing on Mapsource )

I have thought about it from East to West as a longest day ride but things are usually hectic a few days before Xmas

Shortest route is 664 kms. Thats all tarseal. which bring foremost to mind, why? The name of this site is ADV Rider. Its an ADVENTURE Ride ok. Plus 1000kms is a nice round number
