The 1st Annual…
Bike the Barns WEST!
Sunday, June 30, 2013
A recreational bicycle tour featuring FairShare CSA farms & local food in the Driftless region! [Download the press release.]
We are thrilled to be working with Driftless area farms, partners, and friends to raise awareness of and participation in local Community Supported Agriculture farms.
When you participate in Bike the Barns, you not only enjoy a day biking to local farms and eating artisan delicacies, but you also support our community’s health — the health of our neighbors, our land, our farmers, and our local economies.
We encourage riders to donate or raise pledges to benefit FairShare’s Partner Shares Program, which helps limited-income families purchase local, organic vegetables and have a direct connection with their food and farm through community supported agriculture.
We’re riding to make sure all of our neighbors have access to fresh, healthy food!
The ride will start and end at Tourist Park, 310 W. Center St. Readstown, WI.
Rider Registration includes an event T-Shirt and food along the route including a breakfast snack, plated lunch, afternoon snack/desert, and post-ride refreshments (including one drink ticket for a Driftless Brewing Company beer!). Additional beer will be available for purchase. Non-riders can join the post-ride celebration by getting a ticket for a suggested donation of $10.
Our anticipated schedule for the day is as follows (subject to change):
8 AM: Rider Registration Opens, Breakfast Snacks
9 AM: First Wave Departs
10 AM: Final Wave Departs
11 AM – 1 PM: Keewaydin Farms, Lunch
1:30 – 3:30 PM: Small Family Farm, Afternoon Snacks/Deserts
4 – 7 PM: Post-Ride Celebration, Snacks & Refreshments, featuring local musician Edward Stanton LeMar!
Where to Stay
