We invite you to join us in Martinborough on Sunday 30 October for this fun tour over three distances - 48km, 67km or 115km, passing through some of New Zealand's most memorable countryside: famed for its great micro-climate, wines, olives, agriculture, and of course hospitality.
As noted elsewhere on the website, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE 115KM RIDERS WILL DO THE LARGER LOOP THROUGH GLADSTONE FIRST, which is the same format as in 2015.
As we wish everyone to fully enjoy themselves we will restrict entries to the first 1000.
This year we will again be supporting the two charities we gave to last year:
There will be 3 rides of: 48km, 67km and 115km.
The 48km ride is a loop of Longbush Rd, Millars Rd to Ponatahi and back to Martinborough.
The 67km ride goes along Longbush Rd to Gladstone, across to Carters Line, Ponatahi and home.
The 115km ride is the 67km loop first, followed by the 48km loop.
Please make sure that you look closely at the map of the course to ensure you know what your chosen route is and where you should be going
The base for the event is to again be the Martinborough Rugby Club on the corner of New York St and Regent St. This means all rides will start and finish there, with the lunch and prize-giving also there.
We will again be selling the MCFR jerseys through this web site and at the ride itself. Fantastic Buying and a great jersey - see the Merchandise tab above.
A coffee cart has been booked for the day and Cycle Science will again be there with riding equipment for sale and a bike mechanic.
We will have extra loos available - and are sorry that we didnt have enough last year. Note that there are more loos across the grounds towards New York St in that lonely building!
Riders who come in after the caterer has left can still get a lunch by coming into the hall and to the kitchen. We will also be keeping prizes for late finishers if you are on the winners list.
