Friday the 9th we drove up north. filled up with dinner supplies in Kaitaia then out to Ahipara to collect everyone’s tracker devices. Really good move as there was much discussion about where to attach them on the bikes. Then up to Waititi Landing (20ks from the cape) where we had booked cabins about a year ago. Lots of riders staying there – from Aussi, Nelson to name a few. Very jovial pre event diner. And everyone did final work on their gear and bikes. Plagues by mosquitos and heat made for restless sleep though.
