    Thanks Sandi, yes and spectacular views, just not much passing room if you get stuck behind traffic :weary_face: Second trip this week and they had cream this time, so was supposed to get the perfect lamingtons shot :p

    Great one @Dartplayer ... the ride clip thingy makes it look like the hills have some good twisting in them! It’s becoming one of the places I need to visit on a bike before I die... which gives me an idea for a thread!

    Yes @DCS900, many 25/35kmph signs, which are the lowest posted. Many come around on themselves to achieve alleviation or decent.
    You would enjoy the North Island coastal rides and the South Island’s mountains and open plains:heart_eyes:
    Visitors and locals usually take a week or more just for the S.I :party:
