    I got an email in my inbox a few days ago from someone who I think is involved in the 4×4 community saying that Endean Road is now open, apparently it is closed over Winter/the wet season.

    Who’s going to volunteer to check it out and GPS it for the website?

    Bump for this one

    Endean road is located just past the lion park up at Paradise valley, Rotorua.

    It’s very popular with the 4×4 crowd so gets pretty roughed up with big holes.

    And that’s why I am waiting for it to dry out before riding it.

    @black-betty @cottlini The info I have is that this track is pretty rough so it’s up to you to decide if you want to try it but I’m good for Saturday, meet up at Pongakawa Valley road junction with Rotoehu Rd and ride from there? 9.30?

    The road wasn’t as bad as I expected. Holds water but most wet bits can be ridden around. Unfortunately there is a locked gate at approx 6km in, we tried to find a way around it but found more locked gates.Still a fun little ride in and out plus the seal up to it is fun.

    Great little ride with Black Betty and Brianflex, no where near as bad as expected but disappointingly short…

    Black Betty got my video up for you to check it out for yourself.

    Hey guys

    just found the link in my junk mail, bugger would have been keen.
    Looks like a great ride. Have got the new side stand parts just need to fit them then the whale is ready for some more action.

    Cheers
