Return from Whitianga

Day 193, Friday 2 March 2018.

I rode back to Auckland today, leaving the pretty but also rather consistently wet town of Whitianga. Almost every time I’ve been there, I have found heavy rain. Maybe I just pick the wrong times.

There were a few showers on the way home but nothing to worry about. However, it had rained quite a bit overnight. I thought about riding home via the Coroglen-Tapu Road, which I haven’t ridden on for a couple of years, but it’s gravel and gets slippery in the wet, so I came back via State Highway 25A from Hikuai to Kopu, which is a nice twisty road across the Coromandel Range.
