Well, I went out on my own again and found some new gravel I hadn’t ridden before – Piakonui Road.
I found myself at The Okoroire pub again where there were about a dozen bikes and some nice hot rods.
I’m more than likely going to head out again this coming Saturday as that looks like the best weather for this weekend. Not sure where yet but considering heading down to Putararu and checking some roads out there, particularly Pinedale Road, East off SH1 just past the Timber Museum, and depending on how the energy levels are Keaoroa Road from beside HoroHoro School off SH30.
I was trying to figure out if there was a through route from South Road heading out of Mamaku over to SH1 Tokoroa way but I don’t think there is.October 7, 2018 at 3:04 pm #27819November 13, 2018 at 1:39 pm #28209
Pending the weather and my health being ok I’m intending to head out Saturday morning and complete the unfinished Tokoroa to Mamaku track. Once at Mamaku check out the access to Leslie-Cecil Road which I understand has recently been illegally blocked by the local council.
From there who knows but maybe head up to Okoriore Pub for lunch.
Anyone interested in coming meet at Caltex Hillcrest, gassed up and ready to leave at 10am.November 14, 2018 at 3:57 pm #28215
Turns out there are a couple of old Rail tunnels just South of Cecil/Leslie Roads, but not accessible from them.
Turning off at Lichfield to Ngatira Road beside the sheepskin shop and in there supposedly. They’re on the list to check out on the way.
