Last minute announcement for Moroccan sand adventure, Meet 9;15am tomorrow at the usual, you will need proper tires if you want to do any of this, We will run up the beach and stop at the wreck for some who want to site see but its the usual you’ll need a budy if you want to run your own pace
(meet at the beach end of Coast Rd past the Golf course (Tide is low at 10:16)
This will not be a slowest of rides and we plan to run up to the end of the beach 50km’s,) as well as other stuff
If you have lesser tires that will be ok for the beach but not much else so plan to split with us at some stage.
Disclaimer, Remember these are private rides only and casual so you need to take full responsibility for yourself (obviously 🙂 )

Do you need ideas what to do on the Auckland Anniversary weekend?
AndrewJanuary 17, 2019 at 12:43 pm #28714
Looks like a great route. Please report back if you can make it through the Kaikohe paper Rd AKA Waima River Rd. Was looking at this but ran out of time last I was up there. Google street view shows what looks to be a locked gate at Old Mill Road end. Also @eddieb was looking for a track log/photos of Waimatenui E Road or Twin Bridges-Donnellys Crossing etc.February 14, 2019 at 11:44 am #28931
Eddies Big Day Out
We are getting together this Sunday to farewell ADV Rider NZ founder Edward Brodie as He and His family head off on their big OE, though we might open invitation up to any near by who may want to join us.
Plan is to ride From Z Waiuku at 11am to a local paper road, ride or watch others tip their bikes over on it, then down to beach and take a brief look, if you’re afraid of sand don’t worry normal cars drive on it, Then head back to mine to do ADV ride skill course in the back yard, (or watch or con me ride on a mini bike) Swim in the Pool if you have bought appropriate wear (no speedo’s or undies 🙂 ) Eat some sausages in bread and take a 5min look at the Garage Bike museum.
Please give an indication if your coming so I know how many sausages to buy and how many to wait for at Gas station 🙂September 14, 2019 at 12:12 am #31444
The Long weekend of 26-27-28 October is upon us and if you don’t know what to do, you can consider a three days ride from Auckland to Northland.
It is very similar to the 2017 AdvNZ Northland Rally which was definitely fun.

We have got a few repeated questions about the Northland Rally on the coming long weekend. Here is a summary of those questions and answers.

Since we have less riding and more time to burn, I have created a short video on how to create and share riding plans.
I do planning in this way for a number of reasons. Without any particular order:
-Just throwing in a few road names or general destinations is not really helping. At least for me.
-We ride differently and having a planned route is helping everyone to get to the destination even if the group breaks up, and no one will miss the highlights of the ride.
-“Driving directions” are prone to change unintentionally. An imported GPX track will always remain the same independently from the user, the device, and other factors like actual traffic.
-To do ride planning in this way, you don’t need special software. It is available on-line and will work on most platforms from tablets to desktop computers.
-Using “driving directions” for planning will help to get only on roads that are public and rideable. Less likely you will end up in front of a locked gate.
-It is free.
If you feel so, create a ride in the greater Auckland area and we can ride it as part of the KLR Ramblers rides once the lock-down is over. Make the ride something between 150km and 400km, and a loop is preferred.

A big thank you for Oldbeer and Anton to help with the creation of this video.
