Ride Description:

Three routes are available to lead you on a scenic tour of some of Connecticut’s most beautiful and productive farmland. Stop at local farms and get to know the diversity of Connecticut’s agricultural production. You can shop for local produce as you ride and we will pick up your purchases and deliver them back to the gathering spot for you. Pedal through some of Connecticut’s most scenic and productive farmland.  Choose between a 10 mile route; 25 mile route; or a Metric Century (62 mile) mile route with farm stops at approximately every five miles.  Buy as much produce or plants as you like and need not worry about carrying it as it will magically appear at the finish.  Cyclists will also receive five Farm Bucks to spend at the farms they will be visiting.  Come enjoy a great day of exercise and support Connecticut agriculture.
