Three new trails that everyone wants to check out.
Park at Raiha Street gate, ride south on Spicer Link to the Spicer Botanical Park.
Cross the ford and start climbing up The Doctor where there is one steep pinch remaining.
Once you get to the top of The Doctor you have earnt a great descent of the raved about Tumeke.

Want more? How about climbing up to Chimney Sweep.

 I know its considered a connector but I usually go Spicer, Te Ara Tai Tonga entering from the old Crash Palace (building) then Doctor to Tumeke. If you looking for the no-hills option then this Easy tour is it Wink

Just wet on the top surface really. Still riding well with mostly good cambers. Take care in the odd flat slippery corner reporter
