Touring getaway for bike advocacy - includes ice cream and s'mores!
Hey bikeforums friends,
I work on a great charity ride for Massbike, our statewide advocacy organization. The Mass BikePike Tour is 4 days of touring fun and camaraderie. Please read below for more information, and feel free to contact us with questions!
Give us two vacation days – and we’ll give you a Massachusetts bicycle adventure!
The Mass BikePike Tour
is a scenic bicycle tour celebrating all the best that Massachusetts has to offer! Taking place from August 1st to 4th, it is “The Friendliest Ride in the East” and is suitable for novice to experienced cyclists. It’s a GREAT use of limited vacation time - join us after work on Wednesday and we’ll enjoy the next four days of exploring on two wheels. You’ll return home Sunday afternoon with new friends and fun memories.
2013’s ride features the rolling hills and picturesque towns of north-central Massachusetts, from the Johnny Appleseed Trail to the Connecticut River Valley. The ride will also head north into Keene, NH, and (long ride only) Brattleboro, VT.
The Mass BikePike Tour offers two routes each day. The shorter route is between 25 and 45 miles and the longer route is between 45 and 70 miles.
Each evening features a pre-dinner “social hour”, and optional nightly field trips to local attractions. The Mass BikePike Tour is affordably priced – less than $400 if you sign up before March! – and proceeds go to the MassBike Coalition
. There are some volunteer opportunities that will allow you to join us for free
