    Put simply, Waitewhena Road is 33km of awesomeness. Smooth flowing corners, good visibility, good surface and a feeling of being miles from civilisati

    The road West from Ohura through to Ahititi is also gravel, and is excellent, well made and flowing with a good surface. Goes right past the end of Kiwi road, making a great option for a longer loop ride

    Some recent pictures of Waitewhena Road. Ridden at the end of April 2017. Definitely a very good ride.

    28/05/2017 The bridge (therefore the road) at the south end of Waitewhena Rd is close for replacement. We tried to get past but couldn’t.

    Rode this N-S on 11/1/21. An excellent bit of road with nice scenery. Road currently in very good condition, albeit with a fair bit of loose surface gravel in some places.
    Got a nice history lesson from a long time resident at Ohura.
    Road from Aria to SH43 has many shiny patches of tarseal, now melting nicely in the summer heat. Felt the back slide out once, despite riding fairly sedately.
