16th Annual Tour de Grace, June 26 — Loop Route Again, Loads of Fun!
2021 Tour de Grace Will Be a Repeat Performance!
Come join the fun—sign up for Grace Cottage’s 16th Annual Tour de Grace bike rally, to be held Saturday, June 26, rain or shine. Start any time between 8-10 a.m., at Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital, 185 Grafton Road, Townshend, VT.
The event follows the same loop as last year, approximately 17 miles on scenic back roads, along dirt trails, and through the historic Scott Covered Bridge (a different route from pre-pandemic years, so that no bussing is necessary). Rest stops with water and snacks are offered along the way and at the end. Return to Grace Cottage to celebrate your accomplishment!
This family-friendly ride is fun AND allows for social distancing! Round up your family or a few friends, enjoy the beautiful scenery, get some exercise, and support Grace Cottage Hospital. Proceeds from this event help Grace Cottage continue to provide essential healthcare services.
Pre-registration is now closed. Call us Friday or just show up on Saturday to register; $40 per person; first 125 to register get a Tour de Grace performance t-shirt.
Helmets are required; mountain bikes recommended.
Can’t make it to Townshend that day? You can do a VIRTUAL Tour de Grace on your own. Sign up for the ride, then send us a photo of your ride, and we’ll post it in our 2021 Tour de Grace photo album on Facebook! (t-shirt not included for virtual riders).
For more information, email email@example.com or call (802) 365-9109.

The 2020 Tour De Grace was a rousing success!
93 riders joined us for the socially-distanced, altered-route-for-safety 15th annual Tour de Grace, and everyone had a good time. Riders ranged from three to 75 years old, and thanks to participants, sponsors, and a group of virtual riders who rode 15 miles at a time and location of their choice, over $7,000 was raised for Grace Cottage Hospital.
Special thanks go to our many wonderful volunteers and Tour de Grace Sponsors: Cota & Cota, D&K Jamaica Grocery. Equipe Sport. Howard Printing, People’s United Bank, Solstice at Stratton, Stratton Resort, and Three Mountain Inn.
Join us for this year’s Tour de Grace on June 26, 2021!
