    I haven’t been up the coromandel for years and never on a bike, so now the weather is warming up I’ve decided an overnight ride to Fletcher Bay is in Order.
    I plan to ride up from Papamoa on 22/10 (weather pending so not fixed in stone, could be a wknd either side) taking in as many of the gravel roads as practial. The plan is…Tapu coroglen rd, 309 rd, Kennedy bay rd, Port charles rd & Port jackson rd.

    Tentatively interested. That’s Labour long weekend and so lots will be on.

    I could not decide whether going on Labour weekend was a good or bad thing. The good being I could hang with the family on the Monday & the bad being, as you say lots on, busy rds etc. Though I doubt Fletcher Bay campsite would be busy in October. If there is definite interest but 22/10 does not suit, Im happy to go on 15/10 or 29/10.

    If you decide to go either 15/10 or 29/10 and the weather outlook is okay then I’m keen and could meet up in Thames. I did a ride at Christmas to Coro including the Tapu and Coro roads and am happy to ride these again as well as explore north of Coro, where I haven’t travelled yet.

    Ok, great to see some interest. Since I’m not fussed on which weekend I shall officially make it the 15th Oct with a poor weather backup of 29th.
    Scott – Happy to meet up at Thames.

    No worries Eddie. Maybe next time. Should be a blast, all new roads for me and I get to test out my new tent.

    There is fuel at the Colville store (Between Coro town and Fletchers) , but prepare to be paying over inflated world market prices…..

    Could do a day ride, not overnight. Got other plans.
