Manawatu Gorge Closure.

by | Oct 6, 2011

I noted the other day that it is highly likely that the Manawatu Gorge will remain closed for at least another 6-8 weeks, worse case  it could be even longer. 

The ramifications of this are already understood by Bike Manawatu but the closure will continue to present a dilemma for those who like to use the Saddle Road and the Pahiatua Track as training routes. 

We have advised for the safety of riders, and will continue to advise, riders to select alternative  hill climbing routes until the Gorge is re-opened. 

A ride out to Highland Home and Valley Road are probably a suitable alternative, if not the Apiti Loop.
