Tour de Farms (Bike Tour) Boston 2009

I did this ride two years ago, and it was great. Highly recommended for anyone who likes food and is up for a bike ride. Bike rentals are available if you don't have a suitable bike. Choose the 15-mile loop or the 40-mile loop. Either way, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the urban and suburban farms in your back yard. The 15-mile loop visits The Food Project, City Natives, ReVision Urban Farm, and the Minton Stables Community Garden. The 40-mile loop visits Allandale Farm, Waltham Fields Community Farm, Newton Community Farm, and Brookwood Community Farm. Sponsors include Farm Aid, MassBike, Urban AdvenTours, Boston Natural Areas Network, Bikes Not Bombs, Dot Bikes, and Rozzie Bikes. They're looking for ride marshals, too: contact jen(at) or 617-354-2922. Click here for further details and to register.
