    I was riding around Hamilton rd among others on Saturday…pretty fresh in the bush.

    Eddie – Did you ride Porters Rd? if so how was it?

    I was looking at Wairoa Rd whilst on Hamilton rd wondering how ridable it was…but was on my own. Wairoa Rd looks like a goddie on google earth if you could ride the full length of it.

    If your still about, I could shoot over Monday morn for a ride around that Rotoma area.

    I didn’t get to Porters road but did Hamilton and the full length of Pikowai Road and lots of others in the area.

    Wairoa and Porters are still on the to do list so are an excuse to come back again, hopefully soon.

    Hi ntst8. You mention riding in the Coromandel. Is there a track from Stoney Bay to Fletcher Bay so I can ride from Port Charles to Port Jackson? Plan is to go there in a fortnight. Thanks Cheers.

    There is a walking track and a mountain bike track direct from Stoney to Fletcher – i don’t think either is accessible to motorbikes though.
    I stuck to (or skated around on) the roads. A 7 hour day all up.
