    I’ve got a route sorted with new 2 windy gravel roads to suss out for the website and after Wednesday night the weather is going to crap for over a week.

    I’m thinking of leaving my place at 6:30pm and the return trip is about 130 km’s.

    Hi Eddi,
    is it close to Auckland? I would come, but to far to go after work to hamilton.

    Not very close to Auckland, about 15km north of Morrinsville.

    I reworked the route to take out Valentines Road on the way as it’s just straight gravel road, that takes it down to 110km.

    Well that was adventure, lots of gravel at night.

    It was good to meet @Sharn Amon, even if we didn’t get a change to actually chat.

    Pictures and hopefully some video to come, along with 2 new tracks for the site.

    Well, that last night gravel section put adventure into the ride. Would have been even better if I could see more then 5 feet in front of me. Still had fun. Thanks Eddie for organising it 🙂
