Atlanta Tour de Farm 2013
Join us for the second annual Atlanta Tour de Farm on Saturday, October 12th and Sunday October 13th, 2013. The Tour de Farm is a unique two day bicycle* tour of local urban farms, including farm-fresh provisions, locally sourced and prepared breakfast, lunch and dinners, and an overnight camping at Le Tre Lune Farm in Douglasville. Proceeds from the event will benefit Community Farmers Markets (www.farmatl.org), which direct the Grant Park, East Atlanta, and Decatur Farmers Markets.
Check out a short video from last year's ride here:
Riders have the option of participating in the whole tour with camping, for one day only, or only for the dinner and overnight camping option.
Bountiful meals and snacks are included and primarily sourced from the farms on the tour and market vendors including from Spotted Trotter and Heavenly Breads, snacks from King of Pops, Revolution Doughnuts, and other yummy market vendors. The on-farm supper will be prepared by Brittany Grace of Gracie's Goodness and Salted Honey. Guests should bring their own cycling and camping gear, with the option to rent from CFM if needed. CFM will provide transport for all food and gear. Participants are expected to have urban cycling experience. Each day will be over 30 miles of riding. Ride leaders and mechanics will be present during the tour, and a free bicycle check is available beforehand.
