"Despite recent rain,   the fine and windy weather that has followed it,  has evaporated the moisture quickly and we are back to critical levels in the forest. Sadly the long range forecast predicts little more than light showers" - sums up the conditions that we are currently experiencing here  - "Words from Bill Mancer from the Waitemata Club" who have unfortunately had to "cancel several" of their planned events.  We are currently awaiting news this week on moisture levels inside of the forest.  WE now have THREE private farming properties that we will take you to visit and we are sure these will provide a great adventure.  Suitable for ALLLL levels of ride attendees with your dual purpose adventure bike.

This ride will be suitable for ALLL levels of Ride Ability - Jim will be leading the Advanced Group and Sue will take those NEW to riding their adventure bikes off the road.  This ride is made up of hard packed farm tracks/trails/gravel roads and sealed roads.  An excellent variety of terrain to travel over.
