Champlain Valley, 35 mile road bike tour (Sunday 10/1)
Cost $130 pp (less for certain options)
Join us on Sunday October 1 for Bike the Barns, a fully supported recreational road cycling tour supporting the rich agricultural movement of the North Country. This one-day Champlain Valley farm-by-bike experience will feature farm tour stops staged along the route where you can personally connect with the local food revolution.
The experience culminates with a finish line local food celebration complete with a meal, beverages and live music. All proceeds will be used to support local farms and a portion of every rider’s event fee will go directly into the FarmShare Fund
