The Deal

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 hiking and biking trails that benefit everyone in the area. This year, we’re requiring all adult participants to fundraise $50. At the time of registration, you agree to meet your fundraising requirement or otherwise have the remainder of your fundraising requirement charged to that card after the event. We hope that you’ll see this as a challenge to meet and exceed!

Youth on the 9 or 22-mile ride are not required to fundraise, but they are more than welcome to!

The Goal

We are asking Tour de Crème participants to help us raise our $20,000 goal from family and friends. We have an online fundraising platform to make it easy, but we’re also happy to accept checks. 

All net proceeds will be split between the event organizers: the Mattapoisett Land Trust and the Friends of the Mattapoisett Rail Trail. Learn more about our organizations and initiatives here

The Incentive

Asking for donations can be easy if you follow our Fundraising Tips.  As a thank you, everyone who raises at least $150 will receive a coupon for a free lobster roll at the after-ride party on the day of the event.  For those who challenge themselves to aim higher, if you fundraise $250+ you will receive a complimentary massage and a free beer! If you don’t wish to ride, you can still come to the party and enjoy a free lobster roll for a donation of $150.  

The Process

After you register, you will automatically be taken to an online fundraising page that you set up and use to collect online donations. There is required fundraising of $50 for all adults this year (not required for youth), but we think you’ll find it easy to raise more for trails and a bike path.  

We accept checks too. Please have them made out to Mattapoisett Land Trust and bring them with you to the start.

Anyone is welcome to fundraise for this event. You don’t have to ride to donate or fundraiser! We encourage our participants to share their fundraising links with friends and family. Again, this link will bring you to the fundraising homepage.
