Got out for a for a great ride yesterday, 350 km’s in total starting in Hamilton.

First stop was Otorohanga, they get their kids started early there but I’m not sure of their choice of machinery.

Otewa Road is straight over the bridge on the South side of Otorohanga and eventually turns into Waimahora Road. A little way along Waimahora Road is a sign for ‘River Access’ which gives access to a large paddock alongside a wide stream. It would make a great lunch spot or practice spot on uneven ground for a new rider.

Owawenga Road runs off Waimahora Road and was in great condition

Once you get past the first gate the track narrows.

The side track to the hut is a lot rougher than the main track

This was deeper than it looked, almost up to the footpegs.

I found some other cool roads too.

It was so hot out the glue melted off my boot.
