Tour de Mansfield: Village to Village Bike Tour!

 

It's time to get your bike out of the garage, make sure you have air in the tires, and start riding!  On Saturday, July 16th, bicycle riders of all levels will have a chance to explore some of Mansfield's nineteen historic villages* on two wheels, in the fifth annual Tour de Mansfield: Village to Village.  The Town of Mansfield, Mansfield Downtown Partnership, Mansfield Community Center, local businesses and volunteers are proud to present what promises to be an active and exciting day.  The goal of the event is to provide a family-oriented activity for area residents, encourage exercise through cycling, bring awareness to the scenic beauty of Mansfield's villages, and to bring the community together around a social and recreational activity.

 

 

The day has been designed to appeal to riders of all levels, and will include a 5-mile Family Fun Ride accompanied by police officers, a 20-mile "challenge ride" and a 40-mile "expert ride".  The rides will start and end at the Mansfield Community Center, and will conclude with a barbecue.  Pre-registration for the event (by July 15) is strongly encouraged, and the cost is $15 for adults.  Anyone under 18 is free. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult who will ride with them.  Participants may register at the event for an additional $5 fee.  The registration fee covers ride support, snacks, lunch and a Tour de Mansfield: Village to Village T-shirt for the first 100 adult registrants.  All riders must wear a helmet and be familiar with basic safety rules of the road.
