Tour de Taste: A Pedaling Picnic, September 13th, 2009

July 23, 2009

It’s amazing how quickly time has past since helping to organize our first Tour de Taste held in September 2007.P9070165  

In additon to the Classic Loop (Fairlee, to Thetford to Lyme to Orford), we added more routes last year that included a family friendly loop around Lake Morey and a more challenging route for longer distance riders. We’ve listened to your comments from 2008 to make 2009 even more fabulous.  We’re pleased to offer you three awesome rides. Each ride is considered it’s own seperate picnic and you’ll find a full offering of great local food along the course you choose.  In addition to the tasty menu items (included in the registration fee), riders will have an opportunity to shop for and purchase goods at select food stops, which will be delivered back to the school at the end of the day. All cyclists enjoy a sweet treat at the end of the ride!


Register today and munch your way along one of these fun and picturesque rides:

    I had a great time on my first ‘Tour de Taste’! Just moved to the Upper Valley and I’m very excited about the focus on outdoor fun. Wonderful job with the organization and a great opportunity for local food businesses to get to know their potential customers.

    I’ll be looking forward to it next year!

    Glad you had a wonderful experience. We just love this event – great food, fun with friends and family, and connecting with neighbors and the community – awesome camraderie!

    We’ll be sending out a short survey to everyone that participated to help us shape next years Tour de Taste – offering some great rides and the right mix of tasty local foods.
    Thanks to you and all the riders that came out to support Upper Valley Trails!
