Bicycles, like paddle boats and an active imagination, remain a pure form of human-powered propulsion. Enjoy wholesome and tangible transportation with today’s Groupon from Franklin Land Trust's Green River Bike Tour in the D2R2 Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee. Choose between the following options:

• For $90, you get four admissions, including lunch, to the Green River Tour at D2R2 Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee, on August 27 (a $180 value).
• For $120, you get two adult and two child admissions, including lunch and dinner, to the Green River Tour at D2R2 Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee, on August 27 (a $240 value).

The Franklin Land Trust, a nonprofit devoted to the preservation of farms and forestland, will host bicyclists from more than 30 states in the seventh annual Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee. Grab a two-wheeled pet and head for the starting line at 9:30 a.m. before coasting along the 40-mile trek on the 300-year-old carriage roads adjacent to the Green River, careening between the towns of Colrain and Leyden, and ending at noon in Green River Village. Like a sprinter in a poncho, the tour will run rain-or-shine.

In addition to supplying snacks along the course, Black Sheep Deli nurtures riders with a variety of sandwiches and cold soda for lunch between 10:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. After dismounting, satisfy road-weary stomachs with a barbecue dinner, including ribs, chicken, brown rice, and grease bowls for thirsty bikes served from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. This Groupon also includes a post-ride pint of Preservation Ale from the Berkshire Brewing Company.

By purchasing this deal you'll unlock points which can be spent on discounts and rewards. Every 5,000 points can be redeemed for $5 Off your next purchase.
