Tour de Taste 2017
Last weekend, the Upper Valley Trails Alliance hosted the 11th annual Tour de Taste event. The 300+ riders enjoyed the classic fall weather while exploring area towns and tasting treats from local farms and restaurants.
UVTA raised over $11,000 that will be used to: maintain and develop trails in the region, get local kids outside through our Passport to Winter Fun program, and create the next generation of trail stewards through our High School Trail Corps! Thank you for supporting our efforts!
We hope that all riders had a great ride and enjoyed the delicious food donated by our neighborhood farms and restaurants. You voted on your favorite food stops, and the results are BELOW.....
