Cornell Cooperative Extension of Madison County invites local residents to hit the road and support local farmers on Saturday, Sept. 22. The area organization recently announced that Tour De Farms, a scenic bike tour of Madison County, is set for Sept. 22, and will begin at Critz Farms in Cazenovia.
The bike tour will include three loops, approximately 10-, 20- and 40-miles-long, all starting and ending at Critz Farms.
Riders will be invited to visit a few farms along the way, followed by a Tour De Fork lunch back at Critz Farms, featuring Empire Buffalo and other Madison County products, and farmer’s market. In addition to lunch, Tour De Farms tickets include free entry to Critz Farms’ Fall Harvest Celebration, a chance to win door prizes and Tour De Farms giveaways.
The event will be a great way for cyclists of all levels to enjoy the amazing homegrown food in Madison County as well as take in the area’s scenic beauty.
Routes will be published in the next few weeks. Those interested are encouraged to stay tuned to madisontourdefarms.com for details on registration, door prizes, lodging and other pertinent information.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the door on Sept. 22. There is an early registration discount available through Sept. 14, and different ticket prices for kids and adults. There are also special tickets available for friends and family of riders who want to attend the lunch only.
