It's that crazy time at the end of the summer when it's not quite the end of summer and you're still trying to fit everything summer in. It's that time of year that's on the cusp of schools starting, college kids packing up, starting to think about cooler weather and all things fall. But thankfully it's also time for the Tour de Taste.
So get your bike out and get ready to use it on the 8th annual Tour de Taste sponsored by the Upper Valley Trails Alliance. It's your chance to enjoy a scenic, pedaling picnic through the Connecticut River Valley. Enjoy the beautiful scenery at your own pace. Along the way you will meet local food producers and community members at food stops as you taste the delicious harvest bounty from local farms and restaurants.
Choose one of three routes: the family-friendly Lake Morey Loop (6 miles), the Classic Loop (21 miles), or the River Road Extension designed for advanced riders (31 miles). The routes are well-described on the registration page (see below) and you will be asked to select your route when registering. Please choose carefully as you may not change your route the day of the ride!
Registration is required and includes detailed route maps, directions, support vehicles, and, of course, an incredible menu of locally-produced foods!

Carpenter and Main, Base Camp Cafe, King Arthur Flour, Tensen Farm,The Lyme Inn, The Local Buzz, Ariana's Restaurant, Lou's Bakery, Trailbreak Taps & Tacos, Strafford Organic Creamery, Boloco, The Skinny Pancake, Riverview Farm, Garfield's Smokehouse, Poverty Lane Orchards, Thistle Hill Farm, Blue Sparrow Kitchen, Co.
