    Sharn organised a Waikato ride from Hamilton out to Awakino at short notice and 4 riders turned out, myself, @Dean Saunders, @Sharn Amon and @facebook-michael-eastwood1.

    Sharn had picked out some awesome roads which will appear on the website once I have cleaned up the GPS files.

    A quick stop in Pirongia to check the route

    A waterfall somewhere

    A big kiwi ass or a big ass kiwi?

    Unfortunately we bailed about half way through the ride as the weather went bad and we weren’t prepared for rain as the forecast had been for sunny and fine weather.
    After a quick bite in Te Kuiti I lead the group via some fun sealed backroads to Te Awamutu where we split up and went our separate ways. We still covered about 200km’s all up.

    awesome start to the season after been parked up for a while, Hauturu rd was/is still a fantastic bit of gravel, the awaroa was looking mighty tempting for a flyfish. Does anyone know if the Awaroa holds fish?
