ok, I’ve been in country 3 months now, and my Tiger is racking up the road miles, but that is it. Anyone want to show the American places near Auckland?June 20, 2016 at 9:59 pm #13212Black BettyParticipant

Sorry not from Auckland, but if your looking for gravel rides google earth is your friend. Used in conjunction with the map of all unsealed roads found here under “Tracks and GPS”. West of Waiwera might be a good place to start looking.August 30, 2016 at 10:53 am #13647
Let me know if you’re still looking. I don’t know many routes, but happy to share what I do.August 30, 2016 at 10:40 pm #13666JoaoKeymaster

Planning on going for a ride Saturday up to Bayleys Beach and back starting from Kaiwaka taking in plenty of gravel roads from Maungaturoto, Waiotira and to Dargaville . Made a route on basecamp keen to go and get lost if anyone wants to tag along.September 2, 2016 at 11:09 pm #13686JoaoKeymaster

Bugger, I cannot do tomorrow…
Next time…September 5, 2016 at 11:14 am #13696
Ah, missed this but did go for a ride (Panmure>Puhoi>Muriwai>Panmure) yesterday. Saw a few adv type bike parked up in Orewa – was that any of you lot?
Ride has reminded me I need to buy some new wet weather gear… 🙂September 7, 2016 at 1:59 pm #13819adriannzParticipant

I did the Waikaretu-Port Waikato loop at the weekend.
The gravel between Waikaretu and Port Waikato gets a bit shorter each year I think but there is still loads of gravel down there and the Nikau Caves cafe has nice cake.
Keen to do some rides with others but still new to it.October 13, 2016 at 12:55 pm #14568Scott LivingstonParticipant

Fancy riding some gravel roads with a group this Saturday – leaving Puhoi at 10am?
If so check out the klr ramblers website:
Might see you there (if it is not raining or at least forecast to clear mid morning)!October 13, 2016 at 1:49 pm #14578giancarloParticipantRank: 125cc Rider
Sounds good. Me and my trusty steed are in!
…given that the Coro ride is pushed out till the 29th.October 13, 2016 at 2:11 pm #14581
Will try. If I get a pass I’ll see you there at 10.
Not a KLR… will be on a yellow DRZ.October 13, 2016 at 8:29 pm #14591Unknown UserSpectatorRank: 50cc Rider
Does not matter what kind of bike do you have. Everyone is welcome.
We are a sweet bunch, but we aren’t melting in the rain. Check out the September ride report. 🙂October 15, 2016 at 8:49 am #14650
No pass for me. Have a fun ride.October 16, 2016 at 8:32 am #14677Unknown UserSpectatorRank: 50cc Rider
5 of us had a great time on Saturday.
Check out the pictures and a short report on the ride.
