Day 206, Thursday 15 March 2018
I was up before dawn this morning to catch the vehicle ferry from Opua to answer some questions for the Northern Odyssey at Okiato and Russell.
Our group made its way south from Paihia via the Waimate Mission Station and Kaikohe and down the Twin Bridges road (State Highway 15), which is always a lovely road to ride. We visited Whangarei Falls, the Marsden Point Oil refinery, Mangawhai Heads, and Goat island, finishing the Odyssey at Puhoi.
It was an excellent route, as all the Odyssies have been, and our group of Aucklanders got on well with each other and all enjoyed the ride.
Distance travelled: 424 km. Total distance so far: 27,793 km
