I returned to Mamaku yesterday to finish mapping this track and had a mostly good run through, although it starting raining and my visor fogged and up so I couldn’t ride with it down, the rain was that really light stinging on the eyeballs rain so that made it fun.

I also had a close call with a local farmer who thought road rules didn’t apply to him, had I been 5 seconds faster I might have been a new hood ornament on his maroon toyota.

The road is still in firm condition, though there was quite a lot of corrugations on the corners, unfortunately when i got home I discovered my GPS software hadn’t recorded anything so the GPX download track is still only half complete.
