    Next recommendation is the finish point of Te Arai Rd. Ends on a pretty nice beach on the east coast. Easy to drive with all kind of bikes.
    Cheers

    I did this one today. I parked the car and bike trailer at the village hall at Pakiri and then rode the bike to the start point a few kms away. I am a novice off road rider, but very experienced road rider. I ride a road legal wr250r.

    Anyway the track is just under 30 kms in each direction. Mostly gravel. A few straights and lots of bends.A bit of road traffic but not much, just be aware on blind corners etc.

    Overall I enjoyed the ride. Not technical really but plenty to get the rear spinning and the front squirming. The beach at the far end is really a cracker and was pretty busy when I was there (this is the xmas break
    currently).

    I recommend downloading the gpx file to your phone as there are a few times you need to choose which direction to go.

    Recommended.

    Just did this one a couple of days ago.
    Not much has changed from previous condition reports, great ride and nice starting point as we are reasonably new to adventure riding.
    Added an overnight into the mix out at The Hideout Cottage, which was about 15 minutes from Te Arai Point and it was awesome, highly recommend the place!!!!!

    Random dude on a red vespa, jandals, t-shirt and shorts…. no helmet… Huge grin… blasting along the gravel road just after the Pakiri turn off was quite the entertaining addition.
