Forecast is saying showers for Friday and rain Saturday morning clearing by arvo

Will have wet weather gears in the bottom of my pack but hopefully they never have to come out

Who is kicking around Tauranga mid morning for the day ? We will arrive about 9am and probably have a nap before unloading the bikes and exploring the area before kicking back in Papamoa for the evening

I should be back around lunch time. I live at the base of the kaimais on the edge of the city of your out cruising.

I've crossed off most of the major mechanical jobs on my bike. New seat thanks to @64valiant and new stickers thanks to @Archetype. Got another 130km under my belt over the last couple of days too. Learning something new each time I get out for a ride - mega windy yesterday and raining on the way to work this morning. 

Now I have to throw together a luggage system and pack my gear, spares and tools.

Pulling the pin on me attending unfortunately. Haven’t had the chance to get any decent kms on the road and turns out a 6ft plus dude on a jog for any more that an hour is horrendously uncomfortable. Really need a bigger bike. Combine with not being in the best position to take time of work etc etc. but hey, there’s always next year!

So if anyone needs a bed there is one sorted for both nights, one is even paid for!

Have a great adventure team, looking forwards to the stories.

@Beaver Yea mate I'm in, I am still looking for a bed on the second night.

He has spots for both nights. He's booked at (I think) Waikanae Beach Motel on Friday and Hicks Bay Motel for Sat night ($30pp).
