FIRST ANNUAL TOUR DE GRACE
FIRST ANNUAL TOUR DE GRACE

Grace Cottage Hospital’s First Annual “Tour De Grace” bicycle rally will be held on Saturday, September 17, so mark your calendar and come ride, watch, or volunteer!

Bicyclists will begin the ride at Stratton Mountain anytime between 8-9:30 a.m. and end at Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend. The 19-mile route is spectacular, including the best that Vermont has to offer, as riders meander on dirt and paved roads along rivers, beside a lake, on top of a dam, through a covered bridge, and around a village green. The entire route is mostly downhill, with a 1500’ vertical drop in gradual increments over the 19 miles, so it is the perfect ride for the easily challenged as well as the enthusiast. Detailed maps will be provided, and the route will be well marked. Volunteers will be stationed along the route to provide water and energy snacks. The Grace Cottage bus will be available to transport riders and their bikes back to Stratton, for those who prefer not to ride back.

The entry fee is $25 and anyone over the age of 12 is invited to participate; helmets are required. For more information or to register for the rally, call (802) 365-9109 or register on-line at www.gracecottage.org.
