    North Range Road runs from the summit of the Pahiatua Track to the eastern end of the Manawatu Gorge. As it runs through the middle of a Wind Farm it gets very gusty and can be very cold.

    The North and Southern ends of the track are maintained by the power generation company for service access to the windmills, however the middle section of track is unmaintained and varies from bumpy farm track to foot deep ruts and large muddy puddles of indeterminate depth.

    Just rode this route on 18-11-2014…although there weren’t any actual river crossings, there were a good number of “puddles” of standing water on the road…2 or 3 were deep enough to go over my boots while walking across. The bottom of them were surprising solid though, with good traction…I’d expected them to be a lot more slick/muddy/soft than they were.
    All in all was a great little ride though! Was nice to get a little break from the tarmac on my way from Napier to Wellington!

    I rode this route last weekend 30/04/2016 and found it not to bad yes it has a few big puddles in the middle and there are a few deep washed out sections but overall it was quite a pleasant ride.
