The tour is an opportunity to gather friends, family and co-workers for a day of fun and exercise in the beautiful and historic Blackstone Valley. Participants of all ages and abilities can travel along one of three noncompetitive routes: a one-mile walk titled the “Golden Mile;" a 5K walk/run; or a 30-mile bicycle ride.
