Boots, jeans, jacket

Low speeds so probs just a denim jacket with tassels is fine.

 

Gloves because I've still got east coast gravel in my palms from years ago

You'd be an absolute numpty to ride 600km in shorts. Especially if you enjoy having skin. 

But once we're off the bikes for the day you better be naked.

I can't wait for 200km of ten inch wheeled gravel misery. Be a solid 6-7 hours I'd say.  Need to ride behind that Steve fella again. (10-5's mate?) Good pace, and not bad lines.

hey @johnnyfive where are all our fuel stops along the way? more specifically on day one as it seems to be the longest.

I'm guessing leave with a full tank, fill up in Murupara, again in Ruatahuna and then nothing until Gisborne ?

There's option for fuel on day one in Taneatua, Awakeri, Kopuriki, Murupara isn't exactly on path but an optional detour, this place Londons Garage
1252 Old State Hwy 38, Galatea 3079
https://maps.app.goo.gl/3cDja7NJJLg1kRup6 , Ruatahuna, and at the Waikaremoana camp ground/lake. 

Day two, may only be fuel at start and finish.

Day three is a little bit better, can post more accurately later. 

I think there's a post about this earlier on, good luck finding it, lol.

Getting some stuff ready for one of the bikes coming this year, new tyres and such. 

Same as last year I can provide spare tubes if needed but you need to message me with what you want and send the cash through before I get them.

Lemme know.

Can we get an entry list in the bottom of the first post?  Be nice to know who's coming. I'd hate to miss the chance to.shit yarn someone cos I didn't realise they were there.
