Here is the end result….

So, with assistance from several places including this page, here is the all new singing and dancing back roads route from Whanganui to Wellington. Including the 23 or so kms down the beach that adds up to 633kms. It’s only 193 direct by SH1 if you are late for your ferry crossing!
Whanganui to Koitiata – 30 kms, 0.5 hours

Hoof it down the beach – is there a tidal restriction here? Any permit required to ride on the beach?

Rangitaiki River to Woodville – 120kms, 2.5 hours

Woodville to Castlepoint – 236kms, 5.5 hours

Castlepoint to Welly – 247kms, 4.5 hours
