A return to the fantastically flat, Hauraki Rail Trail (only 788m of climbing). They have replaced some of the more butt breaking cattle stops with a smoother version.
Starting in Kaiaua, for an easy 20km road ride along the coast to Waitakarururu, before starting the train proper. Ride the trail all the way to Waikino for a stop. Then on to Waihi and hit the return trail, with a short detour into Thames, before riding back home to Kaiaua.
About 170kms of gravel, 30kms of seal.
Easily doable in under 13.5 hours, which means a chance to have a good feed at the Kaiaua takeaways.
This ride is a BRM ride, with a time limit of 13.5 hours.
Start and finish is at the Kaiaua boat ramp.
202 km on gravel track. There is 30km on tar seal.
