Three new route options and four new farm stops have been added to the second annual Bike the Barns, a one-day recreational bicycle tour that takes riders through the agricultural landscapes of the Adirondack region, on Sunday, October 1st.
This year’s event, which is hosted by the Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA), will start and finish at the historic Whallonsburg Grange Hall in the heart of the Champlain Valley.
This year, riders can register for one of three fully-supported routes of approximately 10, 35 and 70 miles in length. Depending on the selected loop, riders will have the opportunity to stop at local farms including Juniper Hill Farm, a certified organic vegetable and flower farm in Wadhams; Sunset Farm, a certified organic grass-fed beef farm in Willsboro; and Bouquet Valley Blooms, a vineyard and recent addition to the Essex agricultural scene. DaCy Meadow Farm will host riders for a rest and lunch stop on their 75-acre heritage livestock farm and Bed and Breakfast in Westport.
