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: cycletofarm.org/chapel-hill.
