    Is Te Papatapu Road still as good as it used to be? I should head out that way sometime and check it out, go along Kawhia Road and then along Te Papatapu road. The last time I was there, I was in a car. I did stop and take a few hundred photos though.

    Te Papatapu Road, fun for most but not all

    Not everyone was enjoying it. In the photo is my cousin, also getting lots of photos.

    Had a great ride encompassing old mountain road, kawhia road, raglan road, ruapuke rd, whanga rd. Beautiful day, three hours or so on metal roads of various condition, open and closed. Oh yeah, then I fell off just after the cattle :-(. Just finished straightening it out though :-). I think I took a wrong turn and missed out on some of Kawhia road, no signal to check on the pic below I followed what was signposted as Kawhia Road. I may have to go back another day to check it out.

    I went for a ride along Kawhia road, then on to Te Papatapu and turned onto Te Hutewai Rd through to Raglan.

    Found a nice spot on Te Hutewai Road for a photo:

    There is planty of gravel on Te Papatapu & Te Hutewai roads, they really should be marked on the map as gravel roads.
