    Check out the event listing: https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/events/239/karioitahi-beach-ride/

    Ride out to check out Karioitahi Beach.

    As far as I can guesstimate low tide should be about 1:30pm but tide tables aren’t published that far out so I could be wrong.

    Meeting and leaving times from Auckland and Hamilton to be arrange in the forum thread.

    You must have a beach permit as below!!!!

    will be nice to see another X at the ride. BTW I know of one going pretty damn cheap if anyone you know might be keen. 2007, 30,000kms, very strong motor (i test rode it, belongs to a mate), he would take $6000 for it.

    I got my Britannia Lynx fairing now, but not enough time to install b4 this ride. Shame, its going to look and function GREAT!

    Hey this ride is the same day as the DGR (Distinguished Gentlemen’s Ride), so any chance we can ride both? It would mean starting the Kariotahi ride a little later like midday or 1pm? Can’t seem to find out the start times or start locations for either ride…..wait the DGR starts at 10AM somewhere in AKL (secret starting place).

    So can we start this Kariotahi ride after midday in order to ride both? Please and thank you!

    This ride is dependant on tide times, and I think my calculations were a bit out. Low tide might not be till about 4.

    I’m thinking of getting out there 2ish. high tide is ~10am so by 2 the water should be a fair way out.

    I’m keen! And I’ve got the permit. I figured I would go up north to the heads and see what is available in terms of roads and maybe a lunch, then meet at the beach for 2pm. Looks like the roads are all sealed though. Pete

    I’m aiming to be there about 2pm from Hamilton.

    I can’t find tide times for Karioitahi Beach specifically but for Raglan High tide is 10:09 and low tide is 16:07 so it shouldn’t be too different from that?

    From pictures I’ve seen the beach is pretty flat and shallow so there should be room to ride the beach by then. Are yuou going up to Manukau Heads/Awhitu? I haven’t been up there myself yet.

    Yep, I thought of going to the Orua Bay Beach Camp. Never been there myself. I figure you are about right based on Raglan tides, for 2 pm beach ride and I’ll be heading back to North Shore probably around 3 or so. We could meet up at say 11.30 to go north from Waiuku if that suits.
