Pohangina Figure of Eight

Ashhurst

The Pohangina Valley, north of Ashhurst, provides some of the best road riding in the country with quiet back-country roads, forest and rural scenery par excellence. The loop we describe has a few kilometres of smooth gravel, but this can be avoided. There are tearooms at Pohangina and a big picnic area with toilets at Totara Reserver, halfway along the ride.
