This 220km tour from Hamilton includes and optional trip to Raglan (where there are sand dunes and the Aotea Harbour) The main route travels first south from Hamilton on SH39 a favoured route by local bikers instead of SH3, it is more twisty and with less traffic. At Waitomo we turn off and head west on the lovely super twisty SH37, passing the Waitomo caves (world famous blackwater rafting) and glow worms to be seen. This we follow up to Oparau. The SH37 road is really excellent riding. From here we can either turn left and go to the Kawhia beach where there is some natural hot water. If we go right we head back and finish the route on the SH31 with yet more turns.
