3rd Annual Bike Ride for Land Conservation: The Southbridge Credit Union TourOpacum Ride!

July 7 @ 6:00 am - 5:00 pm

$35 – $70

Bikes and Beers! Who could ask for more on a summer afternoon?

Join Opacum Land Trust for this spectacular scenic bike ride through Sturbridge, Brimfield, Brookfield, and surrounding towns and take in the beauty of the several properties Opacum Land Trust has conserved. With Brimfield Winery & Cidery as our home base, serious riders can choose a challenging 50 or 100-mile ride through the hills of Brimfield and Monson. Routes are also laid out for a beautiful 25-mile loop. There will also be a 2.1 mile family-friendly ride.
Brimfield Winery’s beautiful pavilion will offer live music by Livestock, while craft beer from Rapscallion Brewery and food are available all day.  We will also have a bike raffle courtesy of Southbridge Bicycles, lawn games and children’s activities run by Roots in Nature.

Opacum is pleased to announce that Southbridge Credit Union is the lead sponsor for TourOpacum, demonstrating a commitment to the character of these communities.

Tour Opacum provides bike riders with the opportunity to explore the beautiful towns and countryside of the Quaboag and Quinebaug river valleys, with proceeds from the ride supporting the charitable work of Opacum Land Trust, preserving land across this region.  Choose from one of four routes to explore the Opacum Land Trust service area with a 99.8 mile Full Tour, 48.3 mile Half Tour, a 26.8 mile Quarter Tour or a 2 mile Mini Tour for families and those who just want to take it easy.

The longer tours are hilly and offer a great challenge for experienced bike riders while the Quarter Tour and Mini Tour are fine for less experienced or new riders (though the Quarter Tour still has its share of hills!).

All routes are on paved roads and fully marked. Click here to view and download the route maps and cue sheets.

After a successful second year with 200 riders, we hope to double participation in 2019.

Join us for a great ride in the morning, or join us later to enjoy the festivities!
