Touring The Trans-NZ ADV Route...the WHAT, WHY, WHERE + HOW



General NZ info and links



NOTE:While there is some excellent and scenic riding just south of the Kaipara, there is also an increasing number of commercial/ touristy ventures as well as the surrounding supply-structure to feed a city the size of Auckland. Northland intermingles with the outskirts of downtown AKL before its onto finding a reasonably smooth way through the bottleneck of bridges and tunnels of some barely connected urban landmass and peninsulas, harbours and industry, hustle and bustle

Re: Trans_NZ_North Island....3. Waipu to Clevedon
 
NOTE: Avoiding Auckland's bottleneck is impossible, but the less time spent in the inner suburbs, the better. Clevedon is another arbitrary location picked for a variety of reasons...it's only 10km off the main SH1 Motorway, it's semi-rural and has good parking, space, pub, shop and cafe....and above all, sits at the head of some neat backroad-routes, sealed + gravel alike.

****** CLEVEDON IS ALSO THE POINT TO SPLIT THE MAIN ROUTE INTO EASTERN AND WESTERN BRANCHES *****

THERE ARE TOO MANY EXCELLENT OPTIONS, EACH MORE WORTHY THAN THE NEXT, THE 2 ROUTE-BRANCHES WILL REJOIN FURTHER SOUTH IN WOODVILLE.
