Tour de Grace Bicycle Rally

15th Annual Tour de Grace, June 27 — Different Route, Still Loads of Fun!

Tour de Grace 2020

Tour De Grace A Rousing Success!

93 riders joined us for the socially-distanced, altered-route-for-safety 15th annual Tour de Grace, and a good time was had by all.  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.

The route this year started and ended at Grace Cottage, so that there were no busses involved, and those who weren’t in family groups stayed 6’ apart at all times.

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 next year! Stay tuned for the 2021 date and more information.

From three of this year’s riders:

“This ride is AWESOME!”
~ Young rider, age 8, from South Newfane, VT
“This year’s Tour de Grace was a fantastic event! I liked the trails so much that the next day I went back with our daughter, Cara. I guess one bright side of the pandemic is that I have “discovered” so many fun things to do outside, right in my own backyard. Also, so many volunteers with great enthusiasm. We really had fun, and enjoyed the dill pickles at the finish line!”
~ Dr. Moss Linder, Townshend, VT
“I wanted to thank everyone involved with organizing the Tour de Grace bicycle rally. We had a great time riding, as always. You folks did a splendid job, especially in light of the current pandemic. The alternate route was fine; we were glad that you could, and did, conduct the ride at all when so many other events have been cancelled. We’ll see you next year!”
~ Tad Downing, Bennington, VT
