Join riders on an awesome bike tour through Connecticut's countryside for an amazing cause-- Friends of Karen’s 14th Annual Journey of the Heart Bike Tour. The ride will raise funds to support hundreds of families throughout the New York metropolitan struggling to care for their child diagnosed with cancer. On Saturday, (basic route 43 miles, extended route, 62 miles), we ride through some of Connecticut’s oldest Colonial towns en route to Bantam for lunch at The Mockingbird, offering seasonal globally inspired fare. Then we ride back to The Heritage Hotel for a dip in the pool, hot tub, massage and a gourmet dinner.  On Sunday, (30 miles) we ride along the Housatonic River, cycling past miles of stone walls, farms and rolling fields. We return for a barbecue lunch at The Heritage Hotel before heading home after an inspiring weekend of riding! The bike tour starts and ends at the Heritage Hotel, 522 Heritage Rd., Southbury, Connecticut.
