    If I've got the right one, it's a super technical mtb'ing section (including Rerekapa): https://www.bikingpheasant.com/moki-...a-trails-loop/

    Moki trail

    Yeah, having a look at Moki trail, that bit is straight out as it does exactly what you link to. I will be able to do part of Moki road however as the eastern side joins up with SH 43.

    Getting closer...

    So I have gone through each days tracks on the 6 Days of Metal map and the turn by turn directions to sanity check as best I can (and make sure to stick to as much contiguous gravel as possible.

    Got me ghetto offline mapping solution via phone, OSMAnd and exports from goggle.

    Compiling a list of fine roadside establishments to stay in (that will hopefully have fellow travellers to celebrate the days tales with).

    Closer and closer.

    Thank you all for the road suggestions and offer for lodging!

    Updated map

    I had to switch to a working copy of the map as I had made too many edits.

    Here it is:

    Also, any recommendations for lodging in Wairoa and Opotiki? Something with a spa would be good after the Motu Road, though having peeps around is likely better!

    Cheers,
