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


On the first loop, the 115km riders turn left at Huangarua Rd, being the first left up from the Huangaroa bridge.  All riders turn left at New York St  to the finish.

Lunch & Prize Giving

Lunch will be available for all riders at the Martinborough Rugby Club from 12:00 midday. The lunch will be provided by Guten Appetit, an excellent local catering company.  

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 4:00pm.

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

Tea, Mela juice 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 2017 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.
