A SouthCoast Bike and Ice Cream Extravaganza!
On Sunday May 21, 2017, the Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path will once again host 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 160 cyclists and 75 volunteers participated in last year’s inaugural event. If you want to see how much fun we had in 2016, see the pictures on our Facebook page. The 2017 Tour de Crème promises to be even bigger and better! If you joined us in 2016, we hope you will ride again this year and bring your friends. If you are new to the Tour de Crème, welcome. Registration opens on March 15th.
All proceeds raised in 2016 — over $5,000 — benefited walking and biking trails in Mattapoisett. 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 support these causes by riding and participating in fundraising, by supporting a rider, or by donating directly to these causes. To donate directly, you can use 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!
