Tour de Woodford

Rotary Club of Maclean Inc.

About

 

 The Rotary Club of Maclean  began The Tour de Woodford in 2008 as a way of bringing the community of the Clarence Valley together in a way that gave not only families and individuals the opportunity to have a great time together, but encourage the more competitive rider to pace themselves against their fellow cyclist on one of two open road course,25 kilometers or 45 kilometers.

Woodford Island as the biggest river Island with its own mountain range in the Southern hemisphere, there is always something changing and over the years this has effected the ride course on three occasions, whether it be changes in road conditions, Floods, bridge works and change of venue.

In 2008 the inaugural ride started from the common at the McFarlane bridge Maclean for the 40 k ride and a second ride started from Brushgrove village for the 20k ride. By 2012/ 2013 bridge work on the McFarlane bridge forced a move to Brushgrove (Recreational Triangle park), this has proved to be a popular move not only for the riders and their families, but also the residence of Brushgrove-Cowper to cheer on the riders at the mass start.

The riders come from across the Valley and beyond, with large groups leaving Grafton, Yamba and Maclean early in the morning for the ride to Brushgrove to support this charity event that can involve the whole community.

No mater which course you are on there are Marshals, support and direction signage along the way, the main thing to remember is that it is an open road event, therefore all road rules apply. Please follow marshal directions and have a safe & wonderful Tour de Woodford.
