Te Aroha

Day 218, Tuesday 27 March 2018

I led a group of Auckland Ulyssians to Te Aroha today. Te Aroha is a town of about 4000 people on the western side of the Kaimai range. It has always seemed a pleasant little town, with an active artistic community and at least two very good cafes. Ironique Cafe has recycled timber and arty metalwork from recycled materials, and Domain Cottage has a spacious outdoor area with a view over the town.

A highlight of the ride was this Royal Enfield 350, which has suitcases used as panniers and topbox. This innovative approach to luggage added to its charm.
