The Sports Backers announced yesterday that the second annual MARTIN’S Tour of Richmond cycling event will be held on Saturday, October 5. The Gran Fondo will feature a full 102-mile loop around Richmond as well as a 59-mile option and a 29-mile option. New in 2013, riders will take a lap around the track at Richmond International Raceway before crossing the finish line.Martins Tour of Richmond logo
 
The full 102-mile course starts and finishes at the Richmond International Raceway complex, which is the site of the post-ride party for all three distances. The 59-mile course will start at the J. Sargeant Reynolds Goochland Campus, and the 29-mile course will start at Patrick Henry High School in Hanover. The post-ride celebration will feature live entertainment, beer, and a barbeque meal for all participants.
 
The 102-mile course passes through eight jurisdictions in and around Richmond including:
          City of Richmond
          Chesterfield
          Powhatan
          Goochland
          Louisa
          Hanover
          Ashland
