CSU’s annual Tour des Glaces (also known as the famous Ice Cream Bicycle Tour) is this coming Sunday, July 26th!
Departs promptly at 10:30 a.m. Meet at Concord (MA) Center, on the green, by the water fountain.
It is a leisurely bike ride to THREE houses of Delectable Dairy Delights:
1. Bates at Kimball’s (Carlisle)
2. Erickson’s (Maynard)
3. Kimball’s (Westford)
Almost everyone can do all or some of the bike ride….the ice cream eating is by far the most strenuous activity of the trip! Although physically challenging (the ice cream eating), for 30 years the trip has been alleged to be calorie neutral, unless you insist on jimmies and/or whipped cream.
The entire loop is about 52 miles, BUT you don’t have to do the entire route. Many proud veterans of the ride have stopped after the first or second cones (there are easy routes back to Concord).
Bring your family, friends, and especially bicycle and helmet!
Contact Gail <firstname.lastname@example.org> to to RSVP or if you have questions.
Note 1: a rain date will be later in the Summer, if needed.
Note 2: If you are coming from Acton or points West, please note that Route 62 East bound from Route 2 into Concord Center will be closed on Sunday for road construction.
