The Tour of the Litchfield Hills returns for its thirteenth year on Sunday August 7, 2016!
For cyclists, the Tour offers non-competitive 12, 30, 55, 75, and 100 mile bike rides through the scenic Litchfield Hills of Connecticut for riders of all ability levels.
For walkers, the Tour offers 2.4, 4.2 and 6 mile walking routes through downtown Torrington Connecticut.
The Mission of the Tour
The mission of The Tour is to bring together community resources with the common goal of raising funds to support the care, treatment, education and prevention of cancer for residents living, working, or receiving treatment for cancer in Northwest Connecticut. By donating funds to The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills, Inc., we will have a positive effect locally, in the Northwest corner, by offering our support to our friends and families living with cancer.
Thank You for riding in 2015
Thanks to the all participants who came out and rode the 2015 Tour. It was a beautiful day in Litchfield County on August 2nd, and that contributed to so many wonderful folks coming out. Because of such great support, we are proud to say that, WE DID IT! Because of your participation, and sponsorship, and donations, and with your support we surpassed our goal! At the end of action, we raised just over $101,000...and that put us over the 1 Million dollar mark for 12 years of hosting this ride. We thank our sponsors and partners, but most of all, we thank all of you for supporting this ride by participating and helping us raise these funds for the Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills. We extend to all of you, a heartfelt thanks!
