Seeing farms by bicycle is one of the best ways to travel! New this year, we've got three bike tours of varying levels of challenge: one for folks of all ages, another that's a bit more challenging, and a 25-mile tour for enthusiasts! We've got Cue Sheets that you can print out and carry that tell you each turn to take, and Google maps that show the elevations you'll be biking. These three tours start at Kelder's Farm, but they are loops, so you could start at any of the farms they include.
Stick to Local Farms Rondout Valley Bike Adventure, June 10, 2017
The weather was gorgeous, a rare sunny day in a rainy month, just ahead of a heat wave. Blue skies and breezes--and some gusts just for fun. Along with the Mid-Hudson Bicycle Club, farm fans from as far as New York City came together to cruise from one to the next. Here are some photos to show what awaits you when you venture into local agriculture.
