Tour de Lyme 2016


Join Us for the Tour de Lyme, May 15, 2016
Ashlawn Farm, Lyme

This year, The E List is teaming up with Niantic Bay Bicycles for the Tour de Lyme! Join the Niantic Bay Team and ride any of the Tour de Lyme routes from the 8-mile Family Ride to the 60-mile Challenge, plus take advantage of these lovely bennies: organized training rides, VIP bicycle mechanic service, an invite to the VIP tent at the event for last minute bicycle love, tweaks, adjustments, or simply to air up your tires. Gather at the tent post ride for cold beverages (yes, adult ones, too!), socialize, lick our wounds and make new friends! Get kitted out: The E List readers take 20% off any in-stock accessories including helmets, cycling clothing (I suggest shorts if you don’t already have them!), lights, spare tubes, bags, computers, nutrition and so much more. You don’t have to join the team to receive the discount. Discount valid through 5/14/16.

Even though I only get on my bike once a year and ride the 25 mile route very slowly (stopping at every rest tent for snacks and a view), I LOVE this event to benefit the Lyme Land Conservation Trust. Help preserve the bucolic fields and farm land of Lyme, while having a blast of a ride and a fantastic food truck picnic after.

Hope you’ll join us and Niantic Bay for an epic event!
