- Bike: DL650, DRZ250, DRZ400S,
Have just ridden from Cape Reinga to Kaiwaka on the northern sections of the NZBCDR…..
Day 1 (yesterday)
Cape to Ahipara via 90 Mile Beach, through Broadwood to Kohukohu Ferry to Rawene.
Through Waiotemarama Gorge Road to SH12 then up and over the Waipoua Forest and down to camp at Trounson
Day 2 (today)
Trounson through Marlborough Road, Kaikohe Road and Waimatenui Valley to Twin Bridges. Through the back of Pakotai and Kirikopuni Valley to Tangiteroria. Round the back of Tangihua Forest to Waiotira, down the incredibly gravelicious Ararua Valley Road to Paparoa, through the back to Maungatoroto, and across Old Mountain Road to SH1.
500kms of awesomeness, more or less.
Sounded the retreat at this point and ran for cover.
