Great to see NZ added to Cycle Travel.  Have cycled there the last 4 UK winters pre covid! 

All I can do now is route plan for when I return. I noticed in planning a North Island route between Mangakino and Taupo that your route attempts to cross the Waikato River at Tram Road. Tram Road is private and I believe barred to cyclists for safety reasons (logging trucks!) - you can check the newsfeed on the Taupo Cycling Club website (admittedly a 2016 posting but no evidence that the status has changed)
