What’s the best way to see Richmond during the fall? By joining in the “big ride” and cycling through the eight jurisdictions of nearby Chesterfield, Powhatan, Goochland, Louisa, Hanover, Ashland and Henrico counties. Join Sports Backers and MARTIN’s for the first annual MARTIN’s Tour of Richmond Gran Fondo. Enjoy beautiful views of both the city and the country as you participate in event offering a full 102-mile, or shorter 59-mile and 29-mile options.
The event is open to both recreational and competitive cyclists. All abilities are encouraged to participate. Enter for the challenge of making it to the finish line, or simply for the goal of pushing yourself and your friends. At the end of your journey plan to stick around for a BBQ feast at the finish line located at Richmond International Raceway.
The ride will take place on Oct. 6, with registration available online until Oct. 3 at 11:59 p.m. Walk up registration will occur on Oct. 5 & 6. Entry fee includes an event t-shirt, finisher medal, chip timing, and post-race celebration (lunch/dinner, beer or soft drink and live entertainment).
