    Hakataramea Pass provides a fast run through from Dog Kennel Corner on SH8 east of Tekapo to Kurow on SH83 or vice versa. The pass is often closed over winter as due to the altitude and the exposed area it can become snowbound, yet in summer temperatures can easily top 30 degrees

    Facebook group member Simon Job went through the Hakataramea recently and have to give it a bit of gas to avoid some errant sheep.

    Hi Guys

    2 Pommes coming to ride your trails in a few weeks, planning this one on March 1st – do we need to call Ben Innes for a 4 digit combo lock code as per Mike Hydes book TT?

    It would be great to have some company if anyone is up for a steady ride with 2 old duffers?

    Road the Haka on Friday last week (on the TT2000). Some rougher bits and the odd bit of nastier deep gravel.

    Also took a wee diversion down towards Black Forest – that road was superb. Really smooth and fast!

    The Hakataramea Valley is part of the South Canterbury high country, with broad mountain landscapes.The road condition is smooth gravel. It’s an easy ride, but there are some tight corners which are not easy to see until almost riding into the corner. The pass is about 74 km. It takes approximately 2 hours of peaceful riding.

    Please check the video from my recent ride
