The 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.

I'm not much of a bike rider, but this does seem like a a good time that showcases land conservation and rail-trails in Mattapoisett.

It’s also an opportunity to raise funds for projects that benefit everyone in the area. "Our goal is to raise $16,000 in total. 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."
