    Maybe a little late notice, but if you are looking for an overnight ride to kick of the summer:
    https://klrramblers.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/klr-ramblers-ride-november-2019/

    This is a relatively remote DoC campsite. You need to bring everything that you need because there is only running cold water and toilettes. Completely off the grid.

    It is also a good opportunity to enjoy this site before the Christmas Holiday craze, and the site will be closed from early 2020 for a long time.

    Great spot that!
    At least they're not closing it for good.

    Hi,
    Done and dusted. In fact, it is never "done" but definitely dusted. We had great weather, great roads and good times.

    Nov 21-22, maybe. Depends on the weather. I don't mind a little drizzle, but if it raining cats and dogs and cows are flying around in the wind, rather not going.
