When are you thinking of coming down Phil? Might be able to act as tour guide.

Just off the top of my head (many of these have photos / ride reports in the Gus thread) -
  • Maungatooks / Akatarewa’s
  • Odlins Rd (technical)
  • Rimutaka Pylon track (rough)
  • Ocean Rd (there & back)
  • Sutherlands Track (there & back - technical)
  • White Rock Rd / Tora (there & back)
  • Hinakura Rd / Admirals Rd
  • Homewood Rd to Riversdale
  • Castlehill Rd
  • Puketoi Road / Pori Rd (assuming that the earthquakes haven’t closed it)
Welcome to base yourselves from here

Thanks Steve, I will check those roads out on a map and formulate a bit of a plan. Plan so far is to come down Waitangi day have that afternoon and the Friday to cruise around and Saturday to ride home. So far probably 4 of us coming, Me, Dawn, Mo and Colin.

That was in the access into the Akatarewa's (Karapoti side). Assuming MarkS hasn't already sold the KLR, perhaps he could show you around that section.
