The Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path would like to thank this year’s Tour de Crème sponsors:
Third Annual Tour de Crème was held Sunday, May 20, 2018.
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 this year’s event. If you want to see how much fun we had, watch for pictures on our Facebook page. Also, you can view a video of the 2017 Tour de Crème by clicking below.
For those of you who rode this year, we hope you had fun and will come back next year. We want the Tour de Crème to be a good time that showcases land conservation and rail-trails here in Mattapoisett. It’s also an opportunity to raise funds for projects that benefit everyone in the area.
We fell slightly short of our $16,000 goal in total, raising a little over $14,000. It is not too late though to help us meet our goal. Every little bit helps! All net proceeds from the 2018 Tour de Crème will be split 50/50 between the Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Bike Path. 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.
You can donate 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.
