    Hi Hadrian,
    I am planning some easy cruising for tomorrow, but your place is a 200km round trip just to get there and back for me πŸ™
    In my magic crystal ball I can see a weekend Waikato ride for February (maybe Jan).
    I hope we can catch up then.

    Okay Andrew maybe I can see you in the Waikato around then then… Feb/jan isn’t far away.
    These are all easy gravel road planned for today as I am only just recovering from a injury.

    I don’t have much knowledge of the Naki other than SH43 itself, so the maps aren’t set in stone, and happy to be a sponge for any info you have or if the route could be improved πŸ™‚ Second Day is Okau Tunnel, Kiwi Road (Tunnel), Moki Road (tunnel), Uruti Road Tunnel, Otaraoa Road Tunnel, Mangaopa Road Tunnel

    Being eyeing a few paper roads in the area if i have time/gas. Anyone have knowledge of the Jury Road (101B Jury Rd, Te Wera 4392) and Mt Damper road (Mount Damper Rd, Tangarakau 4397) paper roads? I have confirmed both are public access via WAMS although that’s about all the info i can find.

    Sounds like you have the best bits covered. Road from Marokopa to Awakino not to be missed. If you plan to head into tunnel central from the Ohura end and across the Waitaanga Roads, then consider Waitewhena Road from Aria to Ohura, very nice bit of gravel. All the Taranaki stuff is very good.

    Don’t know anything about the paper roads

    Hope the weather is good for you.

    Got out to Muriwai with a couple of others today. Ended up doing the beach access to Wilson Road. After all the rain lately its nicely packed and was good fun.
