Martin’s Tour of Richmond rolls through Henrico
Citizen Staff Reports 10/04/12
The first annual Martin’s Tour of Richmond cycling event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 6. This Gran Fondo will feature a full 102-mile loop around Richmond as well as a 59-mile option and a 29-mile option.
Gran Fondos, or “big ride” in Italian, are long distance, mass-participation cycling events – not races. Participation is open to recreational and competitive amateur cyclists. The full 102-mile course starts at Richmond International Raceway at 7 a.m. The 59-mile course starts at the J. Sargeant Reynolds Goochland Campus at 10 a.m. and the 29-mile course starts at Patrick Henry High School in Hanover at 12:30 p.m. All riders finish at the Richmond Raceway Complex where a post-ride celebration will feature live entertainment, beer and barbecue.
The race will briefly interfere with road traffic in Henrico at the following areas:
Walk-up registration Oct. 5-6 is $50 to $115. The event charity is Bike/Walk RVA, an advocacy program committed to making the Richmond area more bike and pedestrian friendly. For more information, visit http://www.sportsbackers.org/events/tour-richmond
