TOWNSHEND – Round up the family and friends of all ages and join Grace Cottage Hospital’s ninth annual Tour de Grace bicycle rally on Saturday, July 12.

The 17.7-mile, mostly downhill Tour de Grace helps raise money for patient care at Grace Cottage Hospital and is a fun, scenic, rural ride. Riders begin at the Stratton Resort Base Lodge parking lot anytime between 8 and 10 am, and finish at Grace Cottage on Route 35. Buses will be available to transport riders and bikes up to Stratton for registration, departing Grace Cottage Hospital between 8 to 8:30 am only.

The route is well marked, maps are available at the starting point, and buses transport riders and bikes back to Stratton. Riders under 12 must ride with an adult, and helmets are required for all riders. Mountain/hybrid bikes are highly recommended.

Volunteers will be stationed along the route to provide free beverages, great snacks, and maybe even some musical entertainment. Free T-shirts will be given to the first 80 riders who sign up at or by phone (802) 365-9109. The entry fee is $25 until July 10 and $30 on the day of the event.

Tour de Grace is sponsored by Stratton (Intrawest), Solstice at Stratton, D&K’s Jamaica Grocery, Equipe Sport, Howard Printing, the Stratton Village Square Shops, and the Three Mountain Inn.

Visit for a route description and registration and pledge forms. These forms will also be available the morning of the race at the Stratton Base Lodge parking lot.

Come and enjoy the beautiful scenery, get some exercise, and help support Grace Cottage Hospital. For more information call (802) 365-9109.
