    Hi,
    I am jealous and happy at the same time. It is a shame i could not ride on the weekend at all, and happy you had such a good time.
    Thank you @herman-prinsloo for taking care of this ride.
    @oldbeer would you mind if a couple of pictures will make it’s way to the klrramblers.wordpress.com?

    Hey guys looks like most of the time you guys head North, but for the occasions port Waikato and the west coast outings.
    Long story short (or possibly long as I type as I think)… I am based in the north Waikato. But an currently converlesing from a work place injury, but have riden some of the eastern bays south of Auckland before and the Clevedon area. There is some nice winding sealed road, with good views here. And can be linked into the seabird coast, from there one could dog leg in to the Hanuia forest, or carry on south to Miranda and return to Auckland via the Hanuia forest and past the water resivours. Aulternitvely the rout could be ran in reverse.
    So this leaves a couple of questions. One has any if you charming JAFAs ? explored these areas? And Two Who would like to explore these areas with me, and plot some of the gravel roads? Or alternatively would you prefer I scouted them first, plotted a course and created an event?

    I rode around the Miranda coast of the forest a month or so back and couldn’t find a way in, others have also commented that there’s no access into there, it’s all private forestry apparently.

    Thank you all for turning up for this ride in such an awesome number! I hope everyone enjoyed the ride despite the unexpected road closure which “slightly” altered out route. πŸ™‚

    Did a Coromandel gravel tour with a few guys and a gal on the weekend. Great fun despite the rain that was meant to blow over! A few mishaps along the way between us all, In order: 1x dropped bike doing a u turn on soft road edge, 1x dropped bike on deep gravel, 1x Highside on wet road with cold knobblies, 2x counts of target fixation ending with bike in ditch, and 1 count of being a silly bugger riding up a steep track and nearly going bush! It ain’t called adventure riding for nothing πŸ˜€

    Tapu-Coroglen Road: Good condition, road works near the end.

    309 Road: Good condition. Seems to be more and more tar all the time πŸ™

    Portjackson/Fletcher Bay Road: Pretty good condition, worsening towards Fletchers with exposed clay.

    PortCharles Road: Bare in places, but base is hard so plenty of grip.

    Stonybay Road: Some gnarlier gravel in places, and probably my favorite road of the trip.

    Waikawau-Tuateawa Road: Some deep gravel and road works in places. I think the only time i felt the need to stand up for extended periods. Looks to be Tarsealing sections after little bay πŸ™

    Victoria Steet: A very unassuming place and name for a gravel road. Good condition some larger chunkier bits near the end from being graded.

    All in a bloody great weekend!!
