Save the Date: Fourth Annual Tour de Crème will be held Sunday, May 19, 2019.
For those of you who rode in 2018, we hope you had fun and will join us in 2019 for our fourth annual Tour de Crème. We want the Tour de Crème to be a good time that showcases recreational hiking and biking opportunities here in Mattapoisett. It’s also an opportunity to raise funds for projects that benefit everyone in the area.
Remember to check back here in a few months to get more information on our plans for 2019 and to see when registration will be open. Also, you can follow us on Facebook.
On Sunday May 20, 2018, the Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path hosted the popular Tour de Crème, a fundraising event combining the SouthCoast’s fabulous cycling with a selection of its best ice cream shops along the route. Approximately 240 cyclists and 80 volunteers participated in the 2018 event. If you want to see how much fun we had, check our Facebook page. Also, you can view a video of the 2017 Tour de Crème by clicking below.
Last year we fell slightly short of our $16,000 goal in total, raising a little over $14,000. All net proceeds from the 2018 Tour de Crème were split 50/50 between the Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path. The Mattapoisett Land Trust used their portion of the Tour de Crème proceeds to help maintain and expand hiking trails on their properties and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path used their portion to help develop a plan to create a section of bike path to connect Mattapoisett to the Marion bike path.
