The Friendliest Ride in the East!


Have you heard of Cycle Massachusetts?

We’re proud to celebrate 10 years as the Friendliest Ride in the East (we used to be the Mass BikePike Tour), and we’re delighted to welcome cyclists for a weekend or a whole week depending on their schedules.  We have some great new features in 2016:

*Cycle Club Discount – 6 or more riders registering from your club will receive a discounted entry fee: contact for more details
*One ride – four states!  Not only do we explore Massachusetts, but we’ll ride the quiet roads of Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York as well.
*Family riding weekend! Our opening weekend is especially family-friendly, complete with shorter rides to kid-approved destinations, an ice cream social, and an all-ages outdoor movie!
*Back to the Berkshires! We’ll explore the quiet roads of this legendary region.  We even have an “Alice’s Restaurant” ride to celebrate the scenes of this famous song.

We’re excited to welcome riders to our fantastic start/finish location at Nichols College in Dudley, Massachusetts.  With two nights on their lovely campus, two nights in the cultural mecca of Great Barrington, and a night each in East Longmeadow and Suffield, CT, you’ll have time to explore the most scenic vistas, visit local landmarks, and savor each experience with new friends.
Cycle Massachusetts is from July 30th through August 5th (2, 4, 5, and 7 day options available) and all proceeds support the Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition.  Sign up today at The registration deadline is July 15th, and Cycle Massachusetts is limited to 150 riders!

Is your summer missing that special getaway?  Do you miss summer camp, or wish you could spend a few days with no concern greater than what flavor of ice cream to eat after a great bike ride?

You’re in luck!  There’s just a few short weeks left to register for Cycle Masschusetts, a fantastic, fun, and flexible bicycle adventure for a great cause!

Join us for anything from 2 to 7 days (between July 30th and August 5th).  Round up your friends or bring your kids along - we have a special family-friendly weekend this year.  Experience the best Massachusetts has to offer – quiet roads, picture-perfect town greens, farmstands, and the best ice cream in the world!  You’ll visit four states in one ride, plus some great views in the Berkshires.

Whether you are a speed demon or just getting back on the bike, there’s something for everyone at Cycle Massachusetts, the Friendliest Ride in the East.  We are the #1 donor to Massbike – sign up now for a last-minute summer escape!
