    Thanks to GC for organising a great ride last weekend and to streethassles for joining us for a ride on his local turf. The Saturday weather was great and so were the roads riding Matakitaki, Brien, Ponganui, Klondyke and then down the coast from Port Waikato to Te Akau Wharf and then via Raglan to Ruapuke where three of us pitched our tents.

    Sunday weather went from clear to drizzle to rain with a repeat cycle of the latter but this did not matter as the terrific roads, scenery and company more than made up for the lack of visibility and being soaked to the skin!

    The roads on this route heading south from Ruapuke included Tuturimu, Waimarori, Te Papatapu and Kawhia with a coffee stop in Kawhia before heading east and turning right in to Kaimango.
    Kaimango travels through Pirongia Forest Park and then pops you out high on a ridgeline looking across a spectacular valley of farmland eventually leading to a T junction with Hauturu Road where we headed East towards Waitomo.
    This road starts out following the river and then climbs higher and higher rewarding you with a great outlook before the road enters a twisty (at least 500 corner, maybe) section through native forest where you eventually pop out on the seal of Te Anga Road. Here BB I headed for Waitomo before saying “Adios” and riding off in separate ways in search of fuel to get us home.

    This was a great ride where all these country roads will deliver the remoteness, tranquility and scenery that us adventure riders enjoy!

    I’m thinking of going down to do Kiwi Road and the road between Awakino and Raglan over the weekend 18 and 19 March. Anyone ridden those lately? Any issues I need to be aware of?
    Thanks
