The John E. Jackman Tour de Mansfield offers a fun way to explore Mansfield’s historic villages,* scenic roads, and vibrant downtown! Choose from a selection of routes around town, all of which begin and end at the Mansfield Community Center. Enjoy riding around Mansfield at your own pace, and build camaraderie with fellow cycling enthusiasts while sharing a group lunch following the rides.
The Tour is named in honor of former Fire Marshal and Mansfield resident John E. Jackman. John served the Town of Mansfield for 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.
*The Town of Mansfield’s historic villages are: Merrow, Mansfield Depot, Mansfield Four Corners, Storrs, Gurleyville, Hanks Hill, Wormwood Hill, Mount Hope, Chaffeeville, Eagleville, Spring Hill, Atwoodville, Chestnut Hill, Mansfield City, Mansfield Center, Mansfield Hollow, Perkins Corner, Ridges, and Conantville.
