    rode Turakina valley road during Christmas break. It must have been partly graded recently as long sections with deep gravel at the north end. and the whole road featured corrugatted saw tooth surface on the corners. To be honest I found this road really tiresome and boring and couldn’t wait for it to be over with. heading north to south there weren’t any good views or anything worth stopping to look at. in no way deserving of its place in “twisting throttle NZ” IMO

    Rode Turakino Valley Sth to Nth on 27 Dec 16. Plenty of bends and gravel reasonably well graded. Even some tar stretches midway. Good views of Ruapehu at the Nth end and only encountered sheep, goats, and friendly farmers.
