11th Annual Urban Farm Bike Ride
September 10, 2016 @ 8:15 am - 4:00 pm$47
For the 11th year in a row, farms throughout Philadelphia are opening their gates for cyclists on Saturday, September 10th as they pedal through the city in celebration of urban agriculture as part of the Urban Farm Bike Ride. Hosted by Weavers Way Co-op and presented by Lindy Communities, the ride supports FOOD MOXIE, an area non-profit that provides farm, nutrition, and culinary education in partnership with Philadelphia public schools and emergency housing facilities.
There are two routes riders can choose from — one clocks in at 18.6 miles and the other at 11.2 — and each winds through Philadelphia’s streets, stopping to explore urban agricultural sites and chat with some of the farmers who help maintain the city’s vibrant farm landscape.
Participants on this year’s routes include:
- Glenwood Green Acres
- Grow Philly
- Growing Together Garden
- La Finquita
- Life Do Grow/Philly Urban Creators
- Ralph Brooks Farm
- Strawberry Mansion Community Garden
- Sunday Breakfast Farm
Both routes for this year’s ride start and end at the Philadelphia Brewing Company, with riders, farmers, and sponsors coming together for an after party to cool down and debrief after pedaling around Philadelphia. Riders should plan to arrive at Philadelphia Brewing Company by 8:15AM on Saturday, September 10th; both routes should return to the brewery by 2:00PM. Ticket includes tour, t-shirt, snacks/water along the route, and after party beer and pizza.
