Sunday, September 18th, 2011 - Great Riding and Great Food
This year's Tour de Farms attracted a record number of bicyclists: 581. It was a glorious day filled with sunshine, great food, stunning scenery, toe-tapping music, and the camaraderie of bicyclists having a wonderful time in the great Vermont outdoors. The VBPC and co-organizers Rural Vermont and ACORN are grateful to sponsors Earl's Cyclery & Fitness, Wolaver's Organic Brewery, American Flatbread, and the Vermont Fresh Network. Below are a few photos that give a glimpse of this special day.

The 3rd Annual Tour de Farms attracted a record high 567 participants. This event, which involves bicycling from farm to farm in Addison County and sampling food along the way, is a real crowd pleaser. Proceeds benefit Rural Vermont and the Addison County Re-Localization Network as well as the
Coalition. Thanks to Earl’s Cyclery and Fitness and Sovernet for sponsoring the 2010 Tour.
Sunday September 19
The second annual Tour de Farms, coorganized with Rural Vermont and the Addison County Re-Localization Network, attracted well over 500 bicyclists, more than double last year’s attendance. Perfect weather contributed to the excellent turnout. Eighteen farms offered goodies to the eager riders and the AppleFest that followed the ride provided music, crafts, and more opportunities to eat! The Tour de Farms will be back on September 19, 2010 so please mark your calendar now and head to Shoreham with your friends for a great time!
