The Performance Decals & Signage Charles Coin Memorial & Mardi Bartlett Classic is UQCC’s premier road racing event.
The 18 kilometre circuit starts off at Mulgowie Hall and tackles the picturesque roads of the Lockyer Valley, where riders will challenge each other for honours in the second round of the Queensland Classic Road Series.
Named in honour of the late University of Queensland Cycling Club members Charles Coin & Mardi Bartlett, this event continues their legacy.
After joining the club in 1990, Charles Coin quickly became a generous supporter, volunteer and friend within both the club and the broader cycling community and industry alike. Charles was a regular sponsor of the UQCC road race in its early days and always came out to volunteer with recording lap times on the day. He had the ability to take on a huge number of tasks, but continuing to maintain poise and balance, and being able to respond each task and club members with a personal approach. His unquestioning support of the University of Queensland Cycle Club is why we proudly named our premier men’s cycling race after him.
