  1. That’s a fairly tough course, the three climbs out of Kaukapakapa are quite brutal as a group, don’t over extend yourself on the first two :).
    Might I suggest for the future, that If you wanted a similar distance and quieter roads that you turn off at Araparera and go through to Warkworth. It’s a similar distance, you get a good climb in at Woodcock’s hill (that’s not a joke) and you will hardly see car all the way to Warkworth.
