Waiwera - Puhoi - Waitoki -
Tahekeroa - Waiwera

14 August, 2011



No photos on this ride before our lunch stop : we were working too hard in to the strong head
wind!!    We rode from Waiwera to Puhoi, up Krippner Road and then headed to Waitoki for
a rather late morning coffee.

After that we retraced our steps - or pedals - to Wainui so we could head up Haruru Road.



This took us over to a spot between Makarau and Tahekeroa, where we stopped for
our roadside lunch.

The wet road glistens in the afternoon sunshine as we have our last snack 8.7km from Waiwera.
