2010 Tour des Farms Bicycle Ride
Your Support Will Go a Long Way!
This ride is designed to raise awareness and support for the cause of Connecticut’s agricultural lands The Tours have become well established as enjoyable family activities with a focus on the uniqueness of Connecticut’s communities. The rides have also raised funds for the Working Lands Alliance, the Connecticut Farmland Trust and for the RC&D’s agricultural viability programs.
This year we are looking forward to hosting several hundred biking enthusiasts at the King's Mark Tour des Farms ride on October 2, 2010. The ride will begin at the Freund Farm in East Canaan, CT.
Please help support programs that provide direct benefits to Connecticut’s farms by becoming a Tour
des Farms sponsor. Your support, at one of our participation levels, will go a long way to showing your
commitment to Connecticut’s vital farms and their contribution to our quality of life and our economy. However support at many levels are still available. The levels of sponsorship are detailed below. Because of the need to prepare t-shirts and other promotional materials, including our press releases and
feature stories for television/radio/newspaper outlets, the window of opportunity for sponsorship of this year’s ride will be open until August 10, 2010.
