3rd Annual East Lyme Bike & BBQ Event

| Smith Harris House

Come join the fun for the 3rd annual East Lyme Bike Hike and BBQ event on Saturday, September 29, 2018 and help preserve our town’s open spaces and historic places that are the foundation of East Lyme’s beauty.

This year there are 6 completely new and exciting cycling routes, and organizers have added 3 new walking routes a 5K-10K-15K for you to explore.

This event is not only a great time, but also helps support East Lyme’s three Historic Houses (the Smith-Harris House, the Samuel Smith House, and the Thomas Lee House) with proceeds benefiting the East Lyme Land Trust.

Whether you come to walk, ride or just for the BBQ a fun and entertaining time is slated for all. This event is geared toward recreational bike riders offering a spectacular ride along either a family friendly 9-mile historical house tour, 20 mile, 26 Mile, 62 mile, 85 mile, or 100 mile course. The family friendly course will take you to 3 historical houses around East Lyme: the Smith-Harris House, the Thomas Lee House and the Samuel Smith House.

All courses will circle back to the Smith Harris House property where mouth-watering BBQ prepared by the Niantic Lions Club will be served to top off the day. Enjoy the live music and explore the sponsor tents as you savor your post-ride feast.

The Smith-Harris House is the host site for the 3rd Annual East Lyme Bike & BBQ Preservation Bike Ride, and will be offering FREE visits to the Smith-Harris House. Proceeds from the Bike & BBQ help preserve our town’s open spaces and historic places.
