I’ve been riding road bikes for over 20 years and finally I’m ready to take on some more adventure… Would be great to go for a ride some time to get used to some gravel. I’m in Omokoroa and keen to join some local rides if you want to show a rookie around…November 9, 2016 at 4:33 pm #15438
@jet_black For gravel rides around here I tend to head Te puke way, back of Lakes Rotoma and Rotoiti etc.
Roads I often ride are Pongakawa Bush Rd, Pugh Rd, Maniatutu Rd, Rotoehu Rd, Campbell Rd, Pongakawa Valley Rd, Hamilton Rd, Manawhahe Rd, Herepuru Rd.
Most of these can be linked together one way or another to make up a pretty good gravel ride.
Next time I go, I’ll let you know.November 10, 2016 at 7:53 pm #15571
Anyone interested in two day ride in December? 17/18th? Plan is to start with Pikowai Rd and finishing with Motu Rd. overnight camp so tents will be necessary.November 10, 2016 at 9:44 pm #15582
