Description:
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.
