East Lyme Parks and Recreation invites bikers, hikers, history buffs and everybody who loves a great BBQ to join us on Saturday, September 29 for East Lyme’s 3rd Annual Preservation Bike, Hike and BBQ to raise money for East Lyme’s historic places and open spaces.

It’s the new and improved Bike & BBQ!

Six new bike routes, three guided hiking routes, a fabulous BBQ feast hosted by the Niantic Lions Club, live music by East Lyme’s own Boathouse Blues Band, plus a special noontime celebration and new bicycle-giveaway for needy children sponsored by the non-profit Foundations for Life (video) called Bikes for Kids.

You’ll be helping preserve East Lyme’s historic places and open spaces. The East Lyme Historical Society / Thomas Lee House, the East Lyme Land Trust, the Samuel Smith Farmstead and the Smith-Harris House at Brookside Farm Museum share equally in the net proceeds of this great event.

Listen to the Common Cents with Dawn interview with Mark Christensen of the Friends of Samuel Smith House as they discuss the historical house and events including Bike & BBQ.
