The 16th Annual Charter Oak Challenge Bike Tour will be held October7 – 9, 2016

The Tour is a challenging and delightful trip through rural Connecticut. We are supported by a professional staff for our three-day, 200-mile ride from Westport to the northwest corner of the state and back. Meals and lodging are provided at the Wake Robin Inn, Lakeville CT.

Riders have access to trained medical personnel, bike mechanics, professional support staff and complimentary massages. Each rider is requested to raise or contribute at least $2,500.

11th Annual Charter Oak Bike TourThe Tour was established in 2001 to support the charitable efforts of the Charter Oak Challenge Foundation. Since then, Charter Oak has raised more than $10 million for its scholarship program and other organizations that improve the lives of children and families in the neediest Connecticut communities.

Charter Oak is a 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. One hundred percent of the money raised by riders and their sponsors goes directly to serving the needs of our local underserved urban communities . The Foundation’s sponsor underwrites all expenses of the tour, including lodging, meals and support.
