    This was the first ride I’d organised since moving to Hamilton and the weather gods weren’t playing nice. Here’s the organising thread https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/forums/topic/waikato-west-coast-loop-ride/

    6 hardy soles turned at the Caltex Station in Dinsdale and we picked up Mark MXNUT at the service station in Whatawhata on our way out of town.

    I didn’t take any pictures on Old Mountain Road but one we got onto the Ragla to Port Waikato road I snapped a few.

    The whitebaiters were out

    Mark (MXNUT) took us on a nice additional 10km.

    The group waiting for me to finish taking pics

    Those roads look mint. I must get up there sometime. Dunno about the Vee on a beach…probably sink up to the bars…

    Great ride Sunday – thanks so much for organising it and pulling it together. Will hopefully see everyone on the next trip, or the 25th maybe. Very much appreciated Edward.
