    Hello everyone.
    I hope it is not too late to invite you to the 12th KLR Ramblers ride.
    This month the ride will be an easy one mostly on roads we are familiar with.

    I was wondering where to go today so I invented the Trans Auckland Trail – just like the other TAT but a bit quicker and less muddy. Well nothing like the other TAT really but hey, it was sunny two days in a row!

    Went from home in the Bays, up to Sandspit via SH16 and West Coast/Woodcocks Road, then out to Matakana and over the hill to Whangaripo, gas up in Wellsford and down SH16 to Hoteo, then Peak Road Taylor Road to Muriwai, then back through the back, Oaia Taiapa Road to Hinau, then around the back of Kumeu, through Riverhead and back to the Bays. Epic.

    Was going to add some pics but its not happening for some reason.

    Hello everyone,
    Here are the details of the KLR Ramblers ride for August.
    Hopefully the weather will be nice, but this is an all weather ride. Something very dramatic need to happen to postpone it. πŸ™‚
    KLR Ramblers ride – August

    While you are preparing for and dreaming about this ride, do not forget to read on about the AdventureRidingNZ “Picture Project” for the September motorcycle show, and contribute a couple of pictures if you can.

    Hi Guys, Just thought id chuck up a few of my favourite roads for guys based around warkworth and rodney who dont want to go to far.

    # pakiri hill (through leigh) nice ride and north end turns to fun gravel.
    # Pakiri beach ( follow the coast)
    # Head in land and smash through ryan road ( changes to Pritchard) ths one good fun with awsome veiws.
    # then just explore through Te arai and tomorata ( good farm tracks etc)

    # also out west is oneriri road in Kaiwaka and Oruawharo south of Kaiwaka. Both are one way but fun rides for an afternoon or evening. If you carry on Oruawharo right to the end you can go past the cemetary and down a mud track onto the beach at the end!

    # Wharahine’s run road is a good place to explore also

    Hope this stems some adventure for someone!

    Thanks for sharing @rustclebrown, would be keen to join you one of these weekends and have you lead a ride through those roads. maybe if you have the GPX files you can share them here?

    I tried to go in to pakiri beach but saw a bunch of signs saying that motorcycles were not allowed… did not have the courage to get in…

    Yea im unsure about riding the actual beach allthough ive seen guys doing on quads to go long lining etc so maybe if your quiet about it. Will be getting out in a few weeks but currently the trusty stead is awaiting some parts. Is anyone doing the distinguished gentlemans ride or is it just for classics and towny bikes?

    Hi @rustclebrown, was up your way yesterday, went to Sandspit for a cuppa and lunch then to Buckletons Beach. Kind of ran out of time but was going to go over the Matakana Hill. Ducked home via woodcocks/west coast road and SH16 back to the shore.

    Not very adventurous but great roads none the less. Look forward to catching up on a ride one of these days.

    Some great roads in Rodney.
