Cambridge, MA -- The Mass BikePike Tour, a bicycle tour across Massachusetts, is now accepting registrations for the four-day event on August 16-19, 2007. The bike tour will travel from Concord to Northampton, with daily riding options ranging from 30 to 65 miles. Overnight stops on the tour will be in Northbridge, Sturbridge, and Ware.
The Mass BikePike Tour is not a race -- but a celebration of cycling in Massachusetts. Families and individuals will enjoy ample opportunity to explore the state’s scenic byways, quaint towns, and all the varied attractions the region has to offer.
Overnight stops will feature great places to camp, meals featuring fresh local products, and evening entertainment that will involve the entire community. Participants who prefer an alternative to camping can choose to stay close by at local inns or B&Bs.
Registered riders will receive maps, route descriptions, lists of local attractions along the route, access to snack stops, SAG support, a commemorative T-shirt, and the camaraderie of friendly folks having a good time.
The final day of the Mass BikePike Tour will feature a grand lunch followed by a parade of bikes down Main Street in Northampton.
The Mass BikePike Tour is produced with the cooperation of MassBike and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation. Proceeds from the event will benefit MassBike, the statewide bicycle advocacy group.
