About This Activity

As with all Cycle to Farm events, the first in the Greenville area will provide participants with a tour of local farms by bicycle, stunning scenery of this beautiful area, tasty food samples crafted by the farms, and products for sale at every farm (including at the Finish, Greenbrier Farm).  And of course, the Fabulous After Party.  Specifically:


Fully Supported

  • Bike mechanic support at the Start
  • SAG (Support and Gear) Vehicles on course (to help you out, and give you a ride back if necessary)
  • Fire/EMS personnel on the course (motorcycles, vehicles)

  • Well-marked route
  • And if all else fails, you'll be provided a detailed cue sheet of the route as well

  • Located every 10-15 miles
  • Tasty samples crafted by the farmers (no charge – these are included in Registration Fee)
  • Great bike food too (fruit, bananas, PB&J, etc)
  • Farmers available to answer your questions about their products and their Farm
  • Buy anything you like on the spot; it will be delivered to you at the Finish (no delivery charge)

Descriptions of each participating Farms will be available soon - watch the website.


Fabulous After Party

Cycle to Farm events are renowned for the yummy  farm-to-table meal at the Finish.  You'll be joined by the volunteers, as well as some of the Farmers and sponsors, in celebration not only of your ride, but of the community that provides us with local food and a great event.

  • Locally-sourced and produced farm-to-table meal  (no charge – these are included in Registration Fee)
  • Live musical entertainment
  • Tours of Greenbrier Farm
  • Beer available for purchase
  • Meals for spouses/family/friends are available — $14 adults / $7 kids (12 and under)
  • Massage available ($1/minute)
  • More swag offered by sponsors
  • Representatives from LiveWell Greenville to answer your questions about their work (they receive the net profits from this event)


Keepin' It Small

  • No more than 300 riders
  • Safety improved with a smaller number of riders on the roads
  • Taste your samples without excessive crowds at the Farm Stops
  • Ensures that the smaller farms have enough product inventory for sale

And keeps the Fabulous After Party community-sized, instead of a zoo!


NOTE All non-rider meals must be purchased before June 6, 2014.  No meals will be sold at the party.
