The 2021 Tour de Barnstable event will be held virtually this year considering the COVID-19 pandemic. Although virtual, you can still have a ton of fun, ride bikes safely with friends, and support our work in the community.
The joy of a virtual ride is you can complete it anywhere you’d like or if you prefer, the official course route has been modified to 25 miles taking place south of Route 28. You can also choose to ride on your stationary bike at home, at the gym or ride your bike on your own 25-mile route.
Please do not gather in groups to complete this ride, and please follow all CDC instructions on how to keep yourself and others safe during this time.
You have from now until the end of the day on Sunday, June 6th to finish the 25 miles. The best part of a virtual ride is that you control all the settings! Want to do the full 25 miles at one time? Have at it! Want to ride five miles a day for 6+ days? More power to you!
The Important WHY
Calmer Choice needs your help to deliver our prevention programs that support the mental health and well-being of students, teachers, and people of all ages in our community. The pandemic has forced us to cancel our relied upon fundraising events, which brings in vital funds to support our work teaching mindfulness. We need you to pedal for our people virtually this year to ensure we can pedal in person for Calmer Choice next year when it is safe again!

It takes a community to make a ride happen, and we need our cheerleaders now more than ever. Make a video of yourself cheering on your team virtually, riding your training bike in a funny costume, or any other fun thing you think will help people cross the virtual finish line.
