From the email:
The Mass BikePike Tour is a scenic bicycle tour celebrating all the best that Massachusetts has to offer!  Taking place from August 1st to 4th, it is “The Friendliest Ride in the East” and is suitable for novice to experienced cyclists. It’s a GREAT use of limited vacation time – join us after work on Wednesday and we’ll enjoy the next four days of exploring on two wheels. You’ll return home Sunday afternoon with new friends and fun memories.
2013’s ride features the rolling hills and picturesque towns of north-central Massachusetts, from the Johnny Appleseed Trail to the Connecticut River Valley.  The ride will also head north into Keene, NH, and (long ride only) Brattleboro, VT.
 
The Mass BikePike Tour offers two routes each day. The shorter route is between 25 and 45 miles and the longer route is between 45 and 70 miles.
Each evening features a pre-dinner “social hour”, and optional nightly field trips to local attractions. The Mass BikePike Tour is affordably priced – less than $400 if you sign up before March! – and proceeds go to the MassBike Coalition.  There are some volunteer options that allow you join us for free. For more information please visit www.massbikepike.org.
