After a night in downtown Auckland it was time to head through the city and start to wind South. It’s was a beautiful morning, and we investigated the pink cycleway in the city before tackling Mount Eden with stunning views of the city!
We then headed through Cornwall Park Mangere (where Mike sported the first flattie of the trip), Manukau and Totara Park before finding some amazing tailwinds just out of Papakura which took us to Clevedon in record time!
Thanks to Kate who met us in Clevedon for ice-cream and a chat :)
The afternoon and evening was winding around Kawakawa Bay, where we met some friendly jersey cows, and the Firth of Thames, before the best Fish & Chips of the trip in Kaiaua for dinner.
Stunner of an evening heading towards Miranda on the brand new section of the Hauraki Rail Trail and a night in Waitakaruru.
