Reasons to sponsor Tour de Lyme

Why it makes sense to sponsor Tour de Lyme…

Tour de Lyme has established itself as a premier cycling event in Southeastern Connecticut.

  • Average over 725 riders each year. Many repeat riders.
  • Riders came from 13 states and from 112 of Connecticut’s 169 towns
  • Participants raved about an outstanding event and a great picnic
  • Six different rides are offered including 2 mountain bike and 4 road alternatives
  • You will be associated with individuals and families of all age groups who support land conservation, enjoy healthy outdoors activities and pursue an active lifestyle.

The purpose is to raise needed operating revenue for the Lyme Land Trust. Our land management responsibilities have grown dramatically over the past 53 years where we are now responsible for the stewardship of over 3,000 acres.

For more than 50 years, the Lyme Land Trust has effectively worked with the support of the residents, to help create a unique rural atmosphere by preserving farmlands, wetlands and forests. Our many preserves, open to the public, offer opportunities for outdoor activities – hiking, cycling, painting, photography etc.

Lyme is the ideal venue for a cycling event…

Road and mountain bike enthusiasts in the area already know Lyme as a biker’s paradise. The Land Trust’s mission to protect our rural, scenic and natural landscape has resulted in the preservation of scenic vistas and long stretches of road winding through uninterrupted forest. Bikers enjoy the serenity of our lightly traveled country roads while admiring the area’s natural beauty. Our venue, Ashlawn Farm offers the perfect venue for convenient parking, check-in and our great post ride picnic.
