A SouthCoast Bike and Ice Cream Extravaganza!
Third Annual Tour de Crème will be held Sunday, May 20, 2018.
On Sunday May 20, 2018, 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 300 cyclists and 80 volunteers participated in last year’s event. If you want to see how much fun we had in 2017, check out the pictures on our Facebook page.
If you rode or volunteered last Spring, we hope you will participate again. If you are new to this event, welcome. Get ready for a fun time! Registration for the rides will begin on March 15th. And remember to register early since this popular event does sell out. Volunteers can sign up now on our Volunteer Page.
If you are concerned the ride will sell out before you have a chance to register, then donate or raise at least $100 on our Crowdrise site by March 15th for Mattapoisett’s hiking and biking trails and we’ll guarantee you a spot on the ride of your choice. We will also give you a free OxCart lobster roll at the Tour de Crème party! Just send us an email letting us know which ride you want. You still will need to register later and pay the registration fee, but your spot will be waiting for you. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $8,000 on our Crowdrise site.
If you would rather donate by check, 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 the right projects. Checks of $100 or more received by March 15th will guarantee you a spot in the ride of your choice. So when you send a check, let us know which ride to reserve for you. And again remember to register later and pay the registration fee. Thanks!
This year the Mattapoisett Land Trust will use 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 will use their portion to help build a section of bike path to connect Mattapoisett to the Marion bike path.
