Yes I wouldn’t want to be on that bit with a fat 17" front plow. I took it nice and easy even with a nice skinny 21' front. I went up the river road a couple of months ago and had to dodge every animal known to mankind - sheep,cows,horses,goats,pigs even lamas. This time I never saw anything until just out of Reatahi - weird how it changes.

And yes it does have a similar feel to 43, Taumaranui to Stratford is also one of the best road rides in the country.

I was intending to head down Whangaehu Valley Rd but the road is/was blocked so Turikina was my 2nd choice - but it was a lovely ride anyway.

What time did you come through? - I went down about 2pm ish
