Cycle to Farm tour brings local food to Triangle folks in need

From staff reportsMarch 31, 2014 

The Cycle to Farm event comes to the Triangle for the first time on May 3.

The 62-mile cycling event is being organized by Velo Girl Rides, which has done similar rides in the Asheville area. The ride will raise money for Farmer Foodshare, a local nonprofit that connects fresh local food with those in need. The ride starts at 8 a.m., and cyclists will visit four local farms, taste food samples and can even purchase food at each farm (volunteers transport purchases) and then enjoy an after-party at RambleRill Farm.

The event costs $69 for cyclists; meals for nonriders can be purchased for $14 for adults and $7 for children. Info:
