Tim Johnson’s Wachusett Fondo back for 2019!

Join New England cycling legend Tim Johnson and a few hundred friends for a fully supported ride on a route Tim describes as ‘The Perfect New England Ride.’ Anchored at the Wachusett Brewery in Westminster, Mass., the event features bucolic rolling roadways, a few gravel sectors, and a fantastic dirt road that connects to the summit road to the top of Wachusett Mountain. From there we descend back to the brewery for a perfect mid-summer post ride meal and beer at the brewery. As the perfect tune up for the state’s largest charity event, this event has been dubbed the “Pre-MC.” And all of the proceeds of the event benefit MassBike, your statewide coalition working to improve conditions for all Bay State bike riders, from Boston to the Berkshires. The event features three distances, including a kid-friendly expedition to a nearby swimming hole! Visit MassBike.org for more information.

The ride will start and end at Wachusett Brewing Co. Kick back after the ride and enjoy some food and beverages with your friends in the outdoor beer garden or the recently opened indoor brew yard.

Proceeds from the event will benefit MassBike. The Massachusetts Bicycle Coalition (MassBike) promotes a bicycle-friendly environment and encourages bicycling for fun, fitness, and transportation. MassBike works with lawmakers to create laws that make sense for the safety of all bike riders and works with state, city and town officials to enforce existing laws.

A 501c3 non-profit, MassBike relies support from members, donors, and sponsors.
