Went for a ride out here a couple of day’s ago on my AJP PR7, you can make up quite a good beach practice loop or figure of eight if you include Mahuta Gap Rd and Glinks Gully. There are also soft tracks along the beach to test your skills (or a nice firm beach ride) as well as going up and down Pawanui Rd and Mahuta Gap Rd. As Eddie say’s coming off the beach at Pawanui Rd is soft with blind corners so best to always check it out first coming towards the beach. I encountered a horse-rider and a vehicle down Mahuta Gap Rd even during the week, so I remained cautious when riding blind.
