How about this for some fun:

Wellington Masters 2 Day Tour of Martinborough

Wellington Anniversary weekend – 23 and 24 January 2021


I’m looking for a ‘show of hands’ for interest in this event. I’d like to make it a fun weekend away for all club members. The grades cover us all; from A to F grade – what a bonus!

I see the weekend going a bit like this:

Friday 22 January 2021

Head to our accommodation in (or near) Martinborough late afternoon, recce the course if we want, have a light dinner, check our gear, early to bed – yeah right!

Saturday – Day One

Morning – A short 8km TT

Afternoon – a graded stage of the following:

  • A,B,C, D, E grades:53km
  • F grade: ​47km

Sunday – Day Two

Morning – Another graded stage that looks like:

  • A,B,C grades: 79km
  • D,E,F grades + Tandems: ​47km

Afternoon – LUNCH – and prizegiving just after mid-day

Home in time for tea 😊

And – the great thing about ‘F-grade’: you ride together! That’s right, similar to the Social Circuit in our regular club races, the F grade be ‘no-drop/stay together’ rides (with racing only to contest sprint points), so KCB’s, KGB’s, anyone else, this could be a fun format to try a mixed club weekend away.


ENTRY FEES (all distances - includes Sunday lunch): ​​​​​​​

Early Bird (until 7th January)

  • Solo – $80
  • Tandem –  $100
  • from 8th January an additional $20 will be charged per entry
  • Masters age grade cyclists only (women 30+, men 35+ as at 31/12/2021)

Shared accommodation (if we can find it) will lower costs and we can have a shared meal/BBQ on Saturday night.

I’ll start looking for suitable houses/hostels/tree-forts in the meantime. Assuming I can find something suitable (price/size/facilities) I’ll ask for a deposit before booking and this will be non-refundable.

If you happen to know of a suitable place (maybe it's yours, maybe it's a friends), do let me know.

I’m sure to have forgotten extremely important points so please fire anything back at me.
