About This Activity
Cycle To Farm is a tour of local farms by bicycle along a stunning route where riders enjoy tasty food samples crafted by the farmers and products for sale at every farm. Purchases are transported by volunteers and waiting for collection at the finish. And, of course, the ride is followed with a Fabulous After Party. Specifically:
