MTSC Cycling – Linton and Beyond

We will depart from the Esplanade side of the He Ara Kotahi bridge at 9.30 am to ride to Linton Army Camp, then right on to Camp Rd, left on to Whitmore Rd and right on to Weld Rd for a short distance. From there we will cycle through a private farm (with kind permission from the share farmer, Jared) and onto Akers Rd, near a railway crossing. Then it’s left into Te Puna Rd past the turn off for a bit, then back to Lochmoigh Rd, left into Lindon Drain Rd, right into Craws Rd then right into Linton Station Rd and along to the historic Craw house (built in 1897). Then it’s back to Akers Rd and a retrace of our route and on to the Esplanade Café for a coffee. Total distance is about 40 km with few hills. The farm track is unsealed and a bit bumpy but all the roads are sealed and fairly quiet.

Parking on Tutaenui Road by the first 50 km sign. 
Heading north on Tutaenui Road / Galpins road turning right into Warren road, left into Mt Curl road, right into Leedstown road (if you miss this turn you end up on state highway 1).
Staying on Leedstown road till the end turning right into Jefferson line then left into Tutaenui Road and back to Marton.
You will have completed a 40 km ride.
The ride is on back country roads mostly sealed with some very good views worthy of stopping and taking photos.
This ride is in the same area as my last ride but is far better. 
Please wear high visibility jackets. 
We will then go to MOOMAR cafe for a well earned coffee, 
MOOMAR cafe is located at 1813 State Highway 1, half way between Bulls and Hunterville.
