Bike the Barns

Sunday, September 29, 2019
Location: TBD

Thank you to all the riders, farmers, sponsors, food and drink providers, volunteers and supporters who made the 2018 Bike the Barns such an amazing event!

Stay tuned for updates about the 2019 Bike the Barns. The date is set, so mark your calendars now: Sunday, September 29, 2019. 

Bike the Barns is a fully supported recreational road cycling tour supporting the rich agricultural movement of the North Country. This one-day experience will feature farm tour stops staged along the route where you can personally connect with the local food revolution. The agritourism experience culminates with a finish line local food celebration complete with a meal, beverages and live music. All proceeds are used to support local farms and a portion of every rider's event fee will go directly into the FarmShare fund.

The FarmShare Fund supports a vibrant regional food system that is healthy for our communities, our farms and our environment. Our goal is to encourage initiatives that promote our region's farms and their products, including subsidizing CSA shares for low-income families.

Bike the Barns is all about connecting with our food, our farms and our agricultural landscapes. Learn about this year's participating farms and the farmers whose hard work feeds our communities. 


Many thanks to this year's Bike the Barns sponsors! Your support makes a difference for Adirondack North Country farmers, local food providers and the regional food economy.
