Travel by bicycle with Sojourn on a bicycle tour of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, off the coast of Massachusetts, and indulge in the finest culinary experience in the Islands. Featured last month in bon appétit, the Beach Plum Restaurant has quickly become a Sojourn guest favorite.
Tucked away in a quiet corner on Martha’s Vineyard Island and surrounded by farmland, the restaurant is one of the best kept secrets for upscale farm to table dining in Massachusetts. Featuring fresh products from the sea, neighboring farms, and nearby specialty producers, Chef Chris Fischer, a 12th generation islander, has quietly transported the country chic Beach Plum Restaurant into the finest foodie destination on the Island.
Sojourn will donate 20% of profits from all Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard & Nantucket bike tours during 2013. Both of these trips use Boston as a hub city. The senseless and heinous act of violence committed at the Boston Marathon has rallied support from a variety of organizations and individuals for those injured and their families.
Sojourn will donate proceeds from these trips to The One Fund for Boston. In the initial 24 hours following the establishment of the Fund, more than $7 million was raised however, given the severity of many of the injuries suffered, this barely touches the surfaces of what will be needed to assist these innocent victims.
