For anyone who is interested in a monthly, easy gravel ride nearby Auckland.

Sounds good, I’m in.November 19, 2016 at 1:23 am #15852
Sorry, not going to be able to make this one due to last minute work commitments.November 21, 2016 at 3:29 pm #159044by4motorcycleParticipantRank: 50cc Rider
I would have come if had checked this page earlier. New so here so still figuring out on where to check for what.
I went to muriwai beach on the 19th, it was alright but would have been better with some company.
If anyones planning any rides next Sunday and is looking for some company i’ll be keen to join in 🙂November 21, 2016 at 7:22 pm #15909Unknown UserSpectatorRank: 50cc Rider
We have done it again.
It was the most scenic ride we had so far.
A short report and some pics are here:

Weather permitting, I’m off on a 2 day ride starting on the 14th January. If anyone wants to join, it’ll be a slow meander.
Auckland – Port-Waikato – Nikau Cafe – Raglan (tent camping, maybe some fishing)
Raglan -SH22 – Ponganui Rd – Klondyke road (east to west) back to Port Waikato – Auckland
If anyone has suggestions on things to see along the way or perhaps an alternate route, feel free to drop a comment.January 3, 2017 at 12:02 pm #16313
@giancarlo I’m keen to join you for the ride from Port Waikato to Raglan, plus tent the night but will ride Ponganui Rd and Klondyke road before getting to P/Waikato.
Day 2 would see us parting ways, as I’d continue riding south to Kawhai, then down Kaimango Rd, Hauturu Rd and finally have a poke around Owawenga Rd before heading home.January 4, 2017 at 10:22 am #16316
Hey @black-betty, that sounds like an interesting second day. Unfortunately I’ve got something on on Sunday afternoon so I have to make the second day short and sweet.
I’ll join you for Ponganui – Klondyke – P Waikato – Raglan on day 1 though. I’ll plan day 2 closer to the time. Might ride with you for part of the ride and then head off home near one of the state highways.January 4, 2017 at 11:42 am #16317
Sounds like a plan GC. All going well, could meet at Glen Murray Motors on SH22 11am?January 5, 2017 at 7:25 pm #16330
Sounds Great, see you at 11am.January 8, 2017 at 11:29 am #16343Scott LivingstonParticipant

I will join you adventurers on this long way down ride if the weather forecast is okay, including a night in Raglan or Kawhia. BB, I’ll also join you for the Sunday morning roads but will most likely depart around Otorohanga before you head east to Owawenga Rd. GC, did you want to meet up at Caltex Bombay at 10.20am and ride together down SH22 to Glen Murray Motors (about 30mins ride)?January 8, 2017 at 1:07 pm #16344
I sense a little posse forming. Sounds great Scott, 10:20 at Caltex Bombay.
Do you still have mine and Black Betty’s mobile numbers? If so, could you please add us to a whatsapp group perhaps so that we can make the sleeping arrangements? I don’t know the area, but looking at the maps there’s a holiday park in Raglan, not sure if its any good though? No DOC sites it seems. Any suggestions?January 8, 2017 at 2:13 pm #16345Scott LivingstonParticipant

I do have your mobile numbers but am not sure about this whatsapp group thingy. If there are not tent sites available in Raglan then we can ride a little further to Ruapuke where there is a good chance they will be able to accommodate us. Have a look at their website ruapukemotorcamp.co.nz which says ‘no bookings needed unless you are a large group’. If needed we could squeeze our small tents on to one site or worst case scenario freecamp down a side track – out of sight and leaving no waste of course.January 8, 2017 at 10:21 pm #16348
All three options sound great.January 9, 2017 at 9:57 pm #16382
Also unsure about a whatsapp group thingy…
According to the Raglan holiday park website there is no availability till 8th Feb. Seems hard to believe but that’s what it says. The Ruapuke Motor Camp looks the business.
Scott, will be good to have the company on Sunday.
ps. I don’t have anyone’s mob number. PM me
See you on Sat.
