Dam Block - Green's Rd

 Length 27km
 Time 1:30
 Grade     2

This is a good "Out and Back" training ride starting from The Fitzherbert bridge in Palmerston North, up Summerhill Drive, then out along Turitea Valley Rd.  At the end of the seal, you start a middle ring climb up passed the Palmerston North water reservoir.  You will then pass through a white vehicle barrier - there are many walkers and dogs using this road, so keep a check on your speed on the descent.

Ride up the valley to the second vehicle barrier and then continue along the road and descend the final steep hill (which has a great view over Linton), which is partially sealed to meet Kahuterawa Rd. Stop and return the way you came to complete the ride.

Remember this is all public road, so keep left and follow the road rules.  Look out for walkers, dogs and other riders. There have been a few bike v car & bike v bike accidents on this ride and the riders always come off second best. Ride sensibly, look out for other users and always keep your speed under control.
