      New gravel has settled nicely. Plenty of grip for climbing. They've also graveled the top of the track, it's now 300% smoother.

      New gravel laid in the last week, you might find it hard to get grip if your true pressure is too high.

      There's a big slip about 200 m up from the end of Rimu Street. Not sure if this is something that you can deal with, but thought you should know.
