This morning our journey begins with a magnificent ride along the Eastern Beaches of Auckland and onto the Bird Coast of Miranda and Kaiaua before reaching the gold mining region of the Coromandel Peninsula. Today's ride around the Coromandel Loop is regarded as one of New Zealand's finest motorcycling roads with long straights many twists and turns along the Hauraki Gulf, through Pohutukawa covered roads, over mountain passes and into dense native forests. Our journey takes us to the gold mining town of Waihi where we will be staying the night.
342 kilometres / 214 miles
Today we are departing the Hauraki district and heading for the Bay of Plenty, our stay tonight will take us close to the East cape, where we'll be staying the night at Hicks Bay. Today's ride is not as demanding as yesterday's ride, we have got long straights most of the way and we ride only a stone's throw from the ocean. We will ride through avocado & kiwifruit orchards and then across the plains to Whakatane and Opotiki and then the roads start to twist and turn as we hug the coast for most of the way before we arrive at our destination for the day in Hicks Bay.
181 kilometres / 114 miles
Today we have a great ride in front of us as we head east south the rugged and enchanting coastline of the Pacific Coast Highway to the East Cape, a place where the local Maori culture is still revered. After enjoying lunch in the small community of Te Araroa we again continue our journey this time heading south to Gisborne one of the main cities along the eastern seaboard for our overnight stop. It is here that cabin boy Nicholas Young was the first crewman on board Captain James Cook's ship the Endeavour to sight New Zealand in 1769. Young Nick's Head, the striking headland protecting the southern opening of Poverty Bay bears his name. For those that wish that evening we take in a Kapa Haka maori show, high above Gisborne, in the natural outdoors.
428 kilometres / 268 miles
Today we make our Journey back to the Coromandel town of Waihi. Today our journey gives us the chance to ride the Waioweka Gorge, a place where man has tried to tame the country, but nature has beaten man time and time again. It is hardy land around here, which makes for a spectacular ride, you are off the beaten track in the gorge. It is an easy ride today, apart from a couple of hairpin bends, you ride along the highland country and then drop down into the Waioweka Gorge and back down to sea level at the Bay of Plenty, depending on how you are feeling we can take the long way back to Waihi or just head straight back. We will then transfer you back up to Auckland that evening or you can remain in Waihi/Waihi Beach - the choice is yours..
