Metro Atlanta Tour de Farm
Join the Metro Atlanta Tour de Farm on Saturday, October 13th and Sunday October 14th - a unique two day bicycle tour of urban farms, including world class meals, and an overnight camping trip on an international farm site. Proceeds from the event will benefit Community Farmers Markets, Inc and the urban farm sites.
All of the farms, gardens, and value-added producer sites are vendors or partners of the East Atlanta Village and Grant Park Farmers Markets. Each farm or vendor site represents a unique aspect of local sustainable agriculture, offering a great learning experience for the local cyclist, gardener and foodie. Riders have the option of participating in the whole tour with camping or for one day only.
All meals and snacks will be provided and primarily sourced from the farms on the tour and other market vendors. Dinner will feature guest Chef Angus Brown of the Octopus Bar. 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. Riders are only expected to carry water between farms. The ride will be physically challenging and participants are expected to have urban cycling experience. Each day will be over 20 miles of riding. Ride leaders and mechanics will be present.
A free bicycle check and urban test ride will be offered Sunday, September 30th at the Grant Park Farmers Market.
There are only 25 spaces available for the two day tour and 5 spaces available for single day register early for space. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with additional questions or media enquires.
