John E. Jackman Tour de Mansfield


 

12TH ANNUAL JOHN E. JACKMAN TOUR de MANSFIELD
The Mansfield Downtown Partnership, Mansfield Community Center, and Town of Mansfield hosted the 12th Annual John E. Jackman Tour de Mansfield on Saturday, June 17.

This year's event featured two new routes along with a casual campus cruise. The new 22-Mile and 43-Mile routes were designed by local riders to showcase Mansfield's scenic roads, historic villages, the UConn campus, and new downtown, Storrs Center. Both routes featured a mix of local roads and a few brief stints on state routes, as well as a couple of scenic, unpaved roads. The Campus Cruise led riders over both bike paths and local and UConn roads.

  ABOUT JOHN JACKMAN
The Tour is named in honor of former Fire Marshal and Mansfield resident John E. Jackman. John served the Town of Mansfield twenty-seven years, was an avid cyclist, and was instrumental in creating the Tour de Mansfield. He was always pleased to see so many cyclists participate in this event. John's passion for bicycling inspired many to start riding and through the Thread City Cyclers club, he made many deep and lasting friendships.            

John died peacefully at home on August 8, 2013 at the age of 58 after a long battle with cancer. In naming this event in honor of John, we celebrate his contributions to cycling and the Town of Mansfield.
