    A great ride. Watch for unsignposted roadworks as well as the animals too.

    As at June 24th 2015 the Whanganui River Road is currently impassable due to slips and subsidence from recent heavy rain. Hopefully the road will be open again soon.

    as of christmas 2015 Whanganui river valley road is open all the way through – road is sealed all the way but in very poor condition and still under repairs – but still very rideable and a really interesting and fun ride back from Wanganui to Raetahi/Nat Park. well worth a look.

    Good advice about watch for animals. When I rode this I met geese who chased my bike and then all most had a head on with a family of wild goats who decided to run across the road for safety when I rounded a blind corner!
