    ok, I’ve been in country 3 months now, and my Tiger is racking up the road miles, but that is it. Anyone want to show the American places near Auckland?

    Sorry not from Auckland, but if your looking for gravel rides google earth is your friend. Used in conjunction with the map of all unsealed roads found here under “Tracks and GPS”. West of Waiwera might be a good place to start looking.

    Let me know if you’re still looking. I don’t know many routes, but happy to share what I do.

    Planning on going for a ride Saturday up to Bayleys Beach and back starting from Kaiwaka taking in plenty of gravel roads from Maungaturoto, Waiotira and to Dargaville . Made a route on basecamp keen to go and get lost if anyone wants to tag along.

    Ah, missed this but did go for a ride (Panmure>Puhoi>Muriwai>Panmure) yesterday. Saw a few adv type bike parked up in Orewa – was that any of you lot?

    Ride has reminded me I need to buy some new wet weather gear… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did the Waikaretu-Port Waikato loop at the weekend.

    The gravel between Waikaretu and Port Waikato gets a bit shorter each year I think but there is still loads of gravel down there and the Nikau Caves cafe has nice cake.

    Keen to do some rides with others but still new to it.

    Fancy riding some gravel roads with a group this Saturday – leaving Puhoi at 10am?

    If so check out the klr ramblers website:
    KLR Ramblers ride โ€“ October

    Might see you there (if it is not raining or at least forecast to clear mid morning)!

    Will try. If I get a pass I’ll see you there at 10.

    Not a KLR… will be on a yellow DRZ.

    Badjelly,
    Does not matter what kind of bike do you have. Everyone is welcome.

    Scott,
    We are a sweet bunch, but we aren’t melting in the rain. Check out the September ride report. ๐Ÿ™‚
