UW- Extension and St. Croix County present the 1st Annual Farm Pedal, a bike tour to promote and celebrate local food and farms in Wisconsin’s St. Croix Valley.
In an effort to gain interest and activity in local foods in our region, the Farm Pedal will allow you to meet several of your St. Croix Valley area farmers, eat delicious local food, and gain an understanding of our regional food system all while on bicycle! The 1st Annual Farm Pedal is scheduled for Saturday, August 8th, 2015.
The ride, 35 miles of agricultural landscape, begins and ends in River Falls, WI at The Roost, LLC. Riders will depart between 9-9:30am. All levels of riders are welcomed, as the ride is meant to be leisurely, with four substantial stops along the way. Non-riders and families of riders are welcomed to participate in a big old after-ride celebration at The Roost for a separate registration fee. Wood-fired pizzas and other local treats will be served. Registration is open now!
