Hey guys.

Been riding for a few years now and just getting into the adventure scene. Currently living in Lower Hutt and would like to do some more adventure type rides (read gravel) then I usually tend to do. I have a KTM950 but after an altercation with a van it is currently at the doctor. Should be back in a few weeks though.

As I said would like to do some more adventurous rides but kinda need people to show me where they are! Only warning I will give is I grow up riding MX but havent been off road in about 20 years so am not the fastest out of the gate (I reckon I will be ready for the Dakar in 2098).

Hi.

If the weather looks alright I'd be keen for a ride. Doesn't look that flash at the moment though. But I've got a jacket.

Hope your foot is better.

The other weekend away you might want to give consideration to is Barts RRRR in late Mar.

Hi Eddie depending on various 'life stuff' I may well join you for at least some of this ride. I may stay an extra day as I'm really keen to do the New Creek - Denniston ride (I've always lost my bottle at that Mackley River).

Cool, the more the merrier. I've 2 + me confirmed so far and I think a few more of thinking of coming for 1 or 2 days. I really want to do Denniston too but I think that might be a bit much for the ankle yet.

If you do go watch the new sections at Muldoons Corner. They have become a windfunnel, & nearly blew me off the bike last time I took a ride thru there on a windy day.
