A SouthCoast Bike and Ice Cream Extravaganza!

 

Thanks to all riders and volunteers who participated in the 2017 Tour de Crème!

 

 

On Sunday May 21, 2017, 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 300 cyclists and 80 volunteers participated in this year’s event.  If you want to see how much fun we had in 2017, check out the pictures on our Facebook page.  Also, remember to check back here next March for information on the 2018 Tour de Crème.

All proceeds raised in 2017 — over $14,000 — benefited outdoor recreation in the Mattapoisett area.   This year the Mattapoisett Land Trust will use their portion of the proceeds to help purchase the Hammond Quarry property on Mattapoisett Neck Road and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path will use their portion to help build a section of bike path to connect Mattapoisett to the Marion bike path.  You can still donate to these causes by using the Donate button to give a contribution by credit card or make out a check to the Mattapoisett Land Trust, P.O. Box 31, Mattapoisett, MA 02739.  Please write “Tour de Crème” in the memo line of the check so we can be sure the proceeds go to these two uses.  Thanks!
