Cycling the Old Coach Road
Over Anzac weekend we stayed at our Tramping Club Lodge up on Ruapehu which gave us the opportunity to do a few rides down that neck of the woods. On a damp Saturday we drove down to Horopito and rode the Old Coach Road to Ohakune before returning to the car. Check out details here.
If you are looking for easier ride I woud recommend you park at Ohakune and get the shuttle to drop you off at Horopito as there is a bit more UP hill going the other way.
