Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend with Cycling, Dining, and Imbibing

Enjoy the long weekend with three days of the best New England has to offer…

Culinary lovers and avid cyclists alike will gather in New England this Memorial Day weekend for the first-ever Lexus Gran Fondo—a three-day celebration of challenging rides, distinctive foods, and delicious wines. The weekend will kick off with attendees joining professional cyclists Christian Vande Velde and George Hincapie on 100-, 50-, or 28-mile rides that explore the scenic Boston and Cape Cod region. Upon arrival at the finish line in Chatham, Mass., cyclists and guests will enjoy a well-deserved barbecue feast prepared by Lexus culinary master Dean Fearing and XV Beacon chef Mauricio Luna, and accompanied by the latest releases of Saison from Blackberry Farm Brewery. Dinner will then be hosted by Lexus master sommelier Carlton McCoy and Lexus culinary master Carlo Mirarchi of the Michelin two-star restaurant Blanca. After attendees retreat to one of Lexus’s hotel partners for the night, the weekend will continue with local rides and dining experiences, including a Champagne brunch, throughout the Cape Cod region. Last-minute tickets are still available. (lexusgranfondo.com)
