    Motomart Summer Adventure Ride to Northcroft Road 17 December 2017/5

    More photos at lunch break at Gladstone and then afternoon tea break at Martinborough.

    1. Still wearing my KiwiBiker shirt after all these years.
    2. This is the adventure version of the KB shirt.
    3. After lunch at Gladstone we were obliged to go home via Martinborough and have afternoon tea there. It was getting a bit late by then and some of our haunts had already packed up but Medici was open.
    4. The Kiwi Adventure Biker shirt says we like it rough and dirty. Well today wasn’t really rough but sheesh it was hot and dusty.
    5. A few clouds forming behind me there but it was still over 30 deg at Martinborough in the late afternoon.
    6. Happy with his day.

    That’s all folks.

    Figure that it’s been way too long since I was out & about, so am heading out this Sunday 4th Mar, via Martinborough (coffee), Homewood Rd, Riversdale, Tinui (lunch), Packspur Rd & Castlepoint.

    Meet point is at Rimutex at 8.30am.


    Mostly gravel roads. One downhill at Packspur Road might be feel a bit sketchy on road tyres on a big adventure bike for a noobie rider.

    I have a new (old) bike to test out.

    Agreed great day out on a nice warm day with the trade off being it was incredibly dusty.

    Hi all. Planning to go through the Wairarapa this Tuesday on my way to the Kaipara 600. Does anyone know whether there is a link from Summer hill road to Rocky Hill road or from Admiral Station road to Ruakiwi road? Any landowners I can ask permission to cross their property? Thanks in advance. Cheers. Hans.
