Tour de Grace is on, rain or shine
TOWNSHEND — Registrationis now open for the annual Grace Cottage Tour de Grace, scheduled for Saturday, June 27, rain or shine.
For physical distancing, the event has a different route this year. Start and end any time between 8 and 10 a.m., at Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital, 185 Grafton Road. This year's 15-mile route goes along Route 30 from Townshend to Jamaica, partly on backwoods trails and dirt roads (see website for details). Helmets are required, and mountain bikes are recommended. Rest stops with water and snacks will be offered along the way and at the end. Return to Grace Cottage to celebrate your accomplishment.
