Old Porirua Road

Fantastic run to the bottom of Ngaio Gorge via Crofton Rd (uphill), Old Porirua Rd (down, down, down) then back up the bridle path to the top of Culcutta St. Not very fast but the stretch to Calcutta (pictured) was about 13 minutes of solid uphill.

Good running down Old Porirua Rd taking it easy. Wonderful views and not a car the entire stretch. Sort of place I could imagine living but know the isolation would get to me in the end – you can walk or drive but don’t bother waiting for a bus. That and the possibility your house might fall down the cliff. Houses perched above slips, letter boxes propped up by the side of the road and rough paths disappearing into the bush.
