    A return to the fantasically flat , Hauraki Rail Trail. But, with extra wind added in. This time it will be in winter, so the track will be mucky. Yaay.

     A 200km gravel ride 

    Route link: 
    https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31308062

    Points to note:

    From Kaiaua to Waitakaruru, you can ride on the road. This includes the short section between Front Miranda Road, and Waitakruru School. ie. Ignore the first 1km offroad section at the 18km mark. Ignore it on the return home to.

    Rotokohu Road, at Paeroa. Ride the Rail Trail path, instead of the road. No one is watching, but it is meant to be a gravel ride.

    200kms Description:

    Starting in Kaiaua, for an easy 20km road ride along the coast to Waitakarururu, before starting the trail 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.

    Checkpoints:

    Waikino: 86kms. Sign in at the Waikino Cafe

    Thames: 149kms. Sign in at the Mobil Station

    Kaiaua: 200kms. Sign in at the Kaiaua takeaways.
