Northern gravel, day 3

Day 99, Tuesday 28 November 2017.

Today I rode down Te Paki Stream to Ninety-Mile Beach. This is the highlight of our trip for me. I never thought I would be able to ride a motorcycle down a stream. Initially I followed the path of the rider in front. As I became more confidant, I found my own routes to avoid deep water and slippery sand.

By comparison, riding for 50 kilometres along Ninety-Mile Beach was easy.

I’m now in Paihia, with some nice gravel roads of inland Northland under my belt. As a friend remarked, we remember Northland’s coastal regions, but pay little attention to the beautiful landscapes of her inland areas. .

Distance travelled: 313 km. Total distance so far: 14,513 km
