Sounds like a great way to spend a weekend.

Don’t know what you are used to doing but AFAIK long days on trail bikes = sore arses.
I’m a fan of taking things a bit slower (I’m old) and enjoying the ride rather then continually consulting your watch to see if you are going to make the ferry. From what I understand of the Molesworth, (havent done it yet, on my bucket list) I wouldn’t want to rush through it.

In terms of off roads and gravel, others will have a better idea of what you can do around the bottom half of the NI. I suspect once you get north of the mountains, you will probably be keen to get home and get off your bikes. Plus will probably be getting a bit dark once you’re up here (Auckland) so gravel is not so attractive.

Good luck whatever you choose to do and safe ride up.

Cheers
