    Whether you live in apartments for rent in Stamford CT or you’re located right in the heart of Norfolk, you’re in for a special treat this year because the Norfolk Curling Club in Connecticut is hosting the first ever Tour De Forest in October of this year right before Halloween. We’ll fill you in on the specific details and more below.

    But for now just know that this is a wonderful event specifically geared toward raising money for two great organizations named Norfolk Rails to Trails and Great Mountain Forest. So if you’re feeling charitable and you also feel like taking a major athletic challenge at the same time, you should definitely consider signing up for this event. It’s truly going to be one for the ages and it’s an excellent event that we pray attract enough attention to continue happening for many years to come.

    So, if you enjoy biking like it’s nobody’s business, then you are definitely going to appreciate this experience more than most. You’ll love the scenery and look forward to being a big part of this charitable race year after year for the foreseeable future.

    What Can I Expect at the First Annual Norfolk Tour De Forest?

    First and foremost, the 12 mile bike excursion through Great Mountain Forest known as the Tour De Forest is happening on October 27, 2018 between 10 AM to 3 PM. So if you plan on attending this important event and want to ride for charity, make sure to keep your calendar open on this day during the event hours.

    As someone interested in riding your bike for 12 miles through the forest, you’ll need to register as an official participant on the day of the event. You can register two different ways. You can either visit or register there on or before October 27 between 8:30 AM to 9:45 AM. Or if you prefer to do it in person, you also have the opportunity to do so on the morning of the race during the same time period at Norfolk Curling Club. So make sure you are ready at least an hour and a half before the event so you can register and become an official participant.

    As a quick reminder, just know that all of the proceeds of this ride go to charity. So, adults will have to pay $40 to become an official participant in the event. Teenagers are required to pay $20 if they would like to officially participate in this charitable bike ride. Anyone 12 years old or younger can ride for free.

    This is for a great cause. All of the proceeds of this bike ride benefit will go to helping the Green Mountain Forest and Norfolk Rails to Trails. So do yourself a favor and come out to the First Annual Norfolk Tour De Forest this year, get to know your community a bit better, enjoy a great day riding bikes through the beautiful forest and get plenty of exercise. Plus you are helping amazing organizations that can really benefit tremendously from your financial contribution.

    So this is a win-win situation for everyone involved. You win because you’re getting out of the house, on your bike, and plenty of exercise as you bike for 12 miles. And the organizations benefit because of your generous financial contribution plus the contributions of all of the other attendees participating in this wonderful bike ride.

    The race will start from the Norfolk Curling Club, which is located at 70 Golf Dr., Norfolk, CT. Lastly, it is obviously possible to register for the event before the big day, and if you register before 10/1 they will give you a five dollar discount on your registration fee. So if you’re looking to save money, then this is one way to still be a participant without paying the total amount.

    And one final thing to mention, there will be a curling demonstration at the club after the race and there will be a drawing and refreshments too. So please keep that in mind because there’s plenty more to do than just riding in the bike excursion through the forest.

    What Kind of Personal Benefits Will I Experience by Bicycling in the Norfolk Tour De Forest during Their First Annual Event?

    For starters, many people want to be a big part of this historic first event because they really want to help the organizations involved. But that should only be one reason to get motivated about this delightful ride through the forest.

    Believe it or not, you are going to feel great after your 12 mile bike ride. Your endorphins and serotonin levels are going to be at their peak and you are going to feel absolutely amazing. That’s why so many people love running and bicycling on a regular basis because it totally makes them feel good. So if you aren’t a regular bike rider, you may want to pick up this hobby and joining this charitable event is definitely a good way to get started.

    You’ll also immediately begin to build self-esteem as you tackle this challenge head-on. Maybe you haven’t pushed yourself and challenged yourself for many years, and this is a great way to finally experience what it feels like to accomplish something amazing.

    If you like many of us, you spend a great deal of time sitting in front of a computer screen at work. And when you’re not at work, you’re either driving the kids back and forth to soccer or baseball practice, or vegging out in front of the TV after the day is done because you’re just too tired to move another muscle. This event will help you break free of the rut you’ve been in and you’ll feel amazing after you’ve accomplished your goal of bicycling for 12 miles through Great Mountain Forest.
