Bike the Barns is FairShare CSA Coalition’s largest fundraiser. Proceeds from the ride benefit our organization and the Partner Shares Program, which help low-income families afford farm-fresh veggies. When you sign up for Bike the Barns, you help families in need buy organic food grown right here in Wisconsin by a CSA farmer. 

The event features farm tours, gourmet local food, craft libations, on-farm activities and live music. Join us as we bike and bus to ensure food for every family!

The ride will start and stop at Fireman’s Park in Columbus, Wisconsin, which has a gorgeous historic pavilion and great green space for lounging before and after the ride. The first half of the route winds its way through mixed fields and forests to the northwest of Columbus, with a few nice sections along state wildlife areas with lots of wildlife. The second half of the ride is through mostly agricultural lands with some gently rolling hills.

Not into biking, but still want to visit the farms? Hop over to the Bus the Barns page to learn about the bus option.
