We headed out of Ahipara towards Herekino, through a gorgeous gorge and up and down some hills through farmland, where the sun had come out and it was a great morning ride. The section from Broadwood to Kohukohu was really tough, with steep gravel tracks, but the scenery made up for it!
Kohukohu, a cute little place on the Hokianga Harbour, served some brilliant and much needed burgers, and we got lucky enough to catch the Rawene Ferry just as it was leaving!
The day couldn’t have been more different to the Flat straights of the beach yesterday, and was up and down with beautiful scenery all day.
We finished our day riding through to Opononi, with a few rain showers and some hills thrown in.
The afternoon in Opononi was stunning, and we fitted in a quick swim and fish and chips for tea! (we think this might be becoming our official dinner...)
