    I’m going to head out 10 ish for a ride. Not sure what direction or whether there will be any gravel yet.

    All good mate ride didn’t go to plan anyway… I rode Churchill east Rd and snuck through some subdivision construction sites (not ripping up the place just calmly riding the dirt) but had a minor farkle failers so it was home before heading to Ohinewhi road. American quality disentangle extend to their plastic mounting brackets, cheers Trailtech…

    Not an Adventure Ride but next Sunday I’m thinking of heading over to Whangamata to have a look at Beach Hop.

    As weather looks good for this Wednesday (2nd), I plan to head out north west for some gentle gravel, probably up the coast. Would be happy for some company, though I may be much too slow for most folk on here (newbie to gravel, and on Honda 150). Set out from Te Kowhai around 9-30 ish, to suit.

    I know it’s short notice but I’m going to head out about 11:30 today for a short ride. Probably Scotman Valley road from Tauwhare out towards Morrinsville.

    Hi NIck

    I’m not the organiser and I think they are leaving 9 sharp so best to be there early.

    Big thanks to @chentengchris for organising todays ride. In total 13 people turned up on 12 bikes, with 2 riders who had never been on gravel before, and another for who it was only their 2nd time.

    Meetup at Dinsdale Caltex

    A scenic stop on Pukewera Road
