Course Map (1).jpg

Both the 67km and 115km rides will do the big loop through Gladstone first, turning off Longbush Rd at Gladstone Rd.  The 48km ride turns off Longbush Rd at Millars Rd and goes across to Ponatahi, then back towards Martinborough over the bridge at Boundary Rd. 

After the first loop, the 115km riders turn left from Princess St into Huangarua Rd in Martinborough, being the first left up from the Huangarua bridge, and do the 48km loop. 

All riders turn left from Princess St into New York St to the finish.

Drink Stations are at both ends of Millars Rd.

Lunch & Prize Giving

Lunch will be available for all riders at the Martinborough Rugby Club from 12:00 midday.  

There will be a gluten-free option. 

Non-riders will be able to buy a lunch for $10.

Food will be available for late finishers up to 2:00pm.

There will be a coffee cart on site at the Rugby Club.

Tea and coffee will be available in the Clubrooms.

Prizegiving starts at 1:30pm at the Martinborough Rugby Club.

Note : Course marshalling and timing for the Rotary Martinborough Charity Fun Ride will finish at 3:00pm. This allows you 6 hours to complete the 115km ride. If you feel this is not attainable then either the 48km or 67km ride could be a better option.  Note that since the 115km riders are doing the 'big' loop first, you will be able to pull out at the 67km mark if the going is too tough.
