    Thought I’d go for a spin “round the block” on Sunday. Any Tauranga/BOP riders keen to tag along?

    Start at BP Pongakawa service centre and finish Maniatutu Rd/SH2 intersection. Lunch/coffee/fuel at Matata. Approx 170Km loop.

    Hi there,

    I’ve been riding road bikes for over 20 years and finally I’m ready to take on some more adventure… Would be great to go for a ride some time to get used to some gravel. I’m in Omokoroa and keen to join some local rides if you want to show a rookie around…

    @jet_black For gravel rides around here I tend to head Te puke way, back of Lakes Rotoma and Rotoiti etc.

    Roads I often ride are Pongakawa Bush Rd, Pugh Rd, Maniatutu Rd, Rotoehu Rd, Campbell Rd, Pongakawa Valley Rd, Hamilton Rd, Manawhahe Rd, Herepuru Rd.
    Most of these can be linked together one way or another to make up a pretty good gravel ride.

    Next time I go, I’ll let you know.
