This Isn’t Just a Bike Ride

By Jennifer Hughes


It’s 100 miles of beautiful, backcountry roads and sweeping Willamette Valley landscapes. It’s several hours of unforgettable times with 99 other like-minded cyclists. It’s discovering local farms and enjoying healthy, natural, mouth-watering edibles. And certainly, it’s an event that leaves you feeling proud, healthy, and a little tired

This debut event begins and ends at the Monroe Sharing Gardens on Saturday, September 17, 2011. Throughout your pedaling journey, you will visit four food-producing farms, where you will be spoiled with the best-tasting mid-ride food that comes directly from the farms and local food-producing companies that share this ride’s philosophy: Be healthy! Eat locally!

At the end of your 100-mile excursion, the folks at Monroe Sharing Gardens will greet you with a freshly prepared, catered meal. Live bluegrass music will play in your ears while you share stories with your new friends. And, as our way of saying thank you for participating in this event and supporting local farms, you will head home with a Bounty Bag. (It’s like swag, but better.)
