This is a superb ride that takes in one of the Taranaki Tunnels and is accessible to everyone. The only struggle might be for beginner riders on large bikes bigger than 1000cc when during a wet spell the hill after the tunnel is prone to getting damaged and slippery.

A few locals take their guns with them but obviously get a bit frustrated with the imposed speed limit on the bridge crossings. ;o)
