The first annual 'Tour de Slate' fund raising bike ride happened  on August 4, 2018
 By all reports the event was a smashing success. The 2019 event
             saw growth far exceeding expectations.

Some comments are a response to "your best and your worst part of event?"

Here are some pictures from the 2018 and 2019 events. Also read what some riders said about their experience.

Most: Knowing I'd finished the big climb.”

“I really feel this is one of the best causes/ fund raisers that truly serves others.”

“My favorite part was meeting, riding, and talking

with the guys from Teen Challenge.”

“Best portalets I've ever seen!”

"Best- cycling with a great friend who I had never ridden with.”

“Liked the rest stop at the Slate History Museum. Took a little time to check it out, will plan to go there when I can spend more time”

“Least favorite was waking up at 4:00am to drive down from Georgia VT, but it was worth it!”

“Forgetting to put on sunscreen, and seeing my son power up the hills!”

“Very nice event. Look forward to returning.”

“I enjoyed the spirit at the Green.”

“Beautiful ride”

"Of all the fund-raising bike rides I've participated in, "Teen Challenges' - Tour de slate" was the most enjoyable. Where else can you experience such great mountain scenery while supporting a wonderful cause. For me the highlight came at the conclusion of the ride. Great food and personal stories of youngsters finding a new life in recovery from drug addiction and alcoholism." - Jim, New Jersey
