Gathering Ground is excited to host our second annual Farm and Field Bike Tour on Sunday, June 26, 2022, from 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM.
During this family-friendly ride of about 14 miles, riders will enjoy the rural beauty of the Island as well as learn about the agricultural projects happening on the Island today.
With tours of Island Orchard Cider‘s orchard, Sweet Mountain Farm‘s bee farm, Gathering Ground’s orchards, vineyards and grazing sheep, and Island Harvest‘s strawberry patch, participants will also get a literal taste of local flavors.
The ticket price of $45 for adults and $20 for kids aged 4-12 includes a locally-sourced box lunch from Hotel Washington, fresh strawberries, and cider tastings.
Island Adventure – the starting place for off-island visitors – is offering a 10% discount for full day bike rentals for anyone who wants to join but doesn’t have their own bike. Burleys and e-bikes also available.
