    Ocean Beach Road lies on the southern cost of the Wairarapa. The ride is about 10km long and starts as a well formed sand track that gently winds it’s way along the beach past a number of weathered bach built in the traditional kiwi style that is rarely seen now. Where the bach end is a DOC campsite named Corner Creek which provides the most basic facilities.

    Once past the DOC campsite the trail climbs along the edge of the hill and starts to get steep and in places soft. Caution is required from here on as there is a significant drop off the side of the track.

    A group of local guys meet up and attempted to ride Ocean Beach but there’s been a large slip recently and currently the track is pretty much impassable.

    You can check out the ride report here: https://www.adventureridingnz.co.nz/forums/topic/wgtn-rideout/page/6/#post-18651

    that is correct, I have been there yesterday, running and the road was in pretty good condition, with bits of super soft sand here and there, what freaks me out on my gs1200 but yeah, looked great, would love to do an expedition soon! 😉

    Ocean Beach was my favorite ride in the Wellington region.

    looks like you’ll be able to test your reborn machine when it’s ready.
