Grace Cottage presents 10th annual Tour de Grace on July 11

TOWNSHEND — Grace Cottage Hospital's 10th annual Tour de Grace bicycle ride will be held on Saturday, July 11. It's a scenic, mostly-downhill ride for family and friends that helps to raise money for patient care at Grace Cottage Hospital.

Riders start at Stratton Mountain anytime between 8 and 10 a.m., and ride at their own pace to Grace Cottage Hospital in Townshend.

Bus transportation is provided to return riders and their bikes back uphill to Stratton Mountain. If you prefer, ask about taking the bus up the mountain first and then riding down.

Volunteers will be stationed along the 17.7-mile route from Stratton Mountain to Grace Cottage Hospital to provide free beverages, snacks, and maybe even musical entertainment! Free T-shirts will be given to the first 100 riders who sign up.

Round up the family, come and enjoy the beautiful scenery, get some exercise, and help support Grace Cottage Hospital.

Registration is $25 in advance, $30 after July 8. You can register at the event. Sturdy tires recommended; helmets required. Information and online registration are available at or call 802-365-9109.
