The Tour of the Litchfield Hills returns for its fourteenth year on Sunday August 6, 2017!
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.
Some late breaking NEWS! Route changes!
Due to some DOT road work (milling and paving on Route 272 in Norfolk) we have some changes to the 30, 55, 75, and 100 mile routes!
If you follow this button to the Maps / Cue Sheets page, you'll find updated maps for all routes reflecting the change as well as updated cue sheets and a link to the downloadable GPS nav. files for cycling computers.
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 2016
Thanks to the all participants who came out and rode the 2016 Tour. It was a beautiful day in Litchfield County on August 7th, and that contributed to so many wonderful folks coming out. Because of such great support, we are proud to say that we were able to raise in excess of $80,000 for our beneficiary. A full accounting is not presently possible as Pledge Reg and other donations are still pending, but we thank our sponsors and partners, and most of all, we thank 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!
