    You went 20km on a gravel road in Auckland?
    You must've gone up and down it a few times...
    High miles, engine knock, rusty chrome, worn pegs...

    I've just checked and it's possible to do it in just 13km of gravel each way (original post updated). On the way there, I took a wrong turn and did an extra 15km or so of gravel unnecessarily. So I probably did around 40km of gravel in total.

    It was a great way to blow out the cobwebs after a month overseas away from my bike though.

    Indeed!
    I went for a short strop on Sunday just to keep the old girl in tune. Took 4 hours, just to be certain...

    I highly recommend the ride out to this tag. The sealed portion of the ride leading up to gravel part is in perfect condition and is a fantastic bit of road. One corner in particular seems to go on forever.

    It must be in Rodney, they're the only ones moaning about gravel roads...

    Here's a little clue to try and get this up and running again:

    Before reaching the tag, you will reach journey's end.

    Fella's, you are supposed to, Not know where it is!
    Unless of course like I said, you've ever stood on the step above the bike.
    A couple of clues.
    It's got a Fletcher's supplied building site to the left of it, it's on a main road out to the north,west!.
    There is a car park on the other side of the steps/entry way.

    Tooo much info Caseye

    I already knows where it is.
    Stood there about 1 year or so ago.

    Think about the previous tag and work back from there.

    I figured it out just by looking at the colour, the building material and the fencing.

    As Caseye dictates if yous been there you'd know it.

    Time for a beersy

    Another pub Caseye? I think you were the culprit at the Puhoi pub about this time last year! Obviously your natural environment...
