Newlands To The Bottom Of Ngauranga

Postby R+P+K on Mon 10/Sep/12 10:10pm

Is the dirt road from Newlands down to the bottom of the gorge public access? Looks like it could make an interesting alternative to the usual up and down the gorge.

Yeah as far as I know, been up and down there a bit and seen others on it, I thought it was a paper road?

Since it's the school holidays, I shot out the door a bit earlier this morning and hit up the Wakely Road downhill. It gets a bit sketchy in places where the gravel gets deeper but all in all a shed-load more fun than bombing down the footpath!

(and also a great way to bed in my new brake pads)

It's not bad upwards either, although getting to the start is a pain.

Yeah, I've thought about that too. Would be nicely sheltered from the Norwester!

Its great for going up, I way prefer it to all the fumes in the Gorge. Only hazard is some F**kwit motorbiker rides up there between 5.30 and 6.00 everyday, which can't be legal?!
