Trip 9 & 10 – September & October 2012

Hello Bike2Farmers,

As you may have noticed (or not) there has not been many Bike2Farm trips this summer. I have been interning on a farm myself (and commuting by bike : ) and have not had the time to organize any trips. BUT there are two trips planned for this harvest time!

1) First off, sorry for the late notice! : Saturday September 15th, 2012 to Jardin de la Resistance for their annual Harvest Party. We went last year it was fantastic!  The trip is 78km and I will be guiding to the farm and Pauline (old bike2farmer) will be guiding it back. We will be leaving at 6:30am on Saturday.

Destination Address: 1150 rang des Botreaux, Ormstown, QC, J0S 1K0

2) Departure early on Friday October 5th, 2012. We will be biking 110km to Ferme MélilotI am suggesting that only people with some distance biking experience come on this trip. That said, I do encourage people to push their limits and am open to possibilities (email me and we will talk about it).

Departure Time: to be determined.

Destination Address: 5022 rue principal, Dunham, QC

Trip Number 8 – Registration now open!

From October 14th-16th, Bike2Farm will journey to the beautiful and peaceful Little Forrest Community to help out with their CSA farm. Little Forrest Community is in the Eastern Townships near Dunham, which is kindof sortof near Cowansville. (You may just want to check google maps if you’re still lost). As usual, we will be biking there on Friday, helping out on the farm on Saturday, and biking back to Montreal on Sunday. We will be riding on Route Verte bike paths for most of the way, including one that runs along the Chambly canal, and passes by two picturesque forts. Our rain date is the following weekend, October 21st-23rd.

This trip should be undertaken by experienced cyclists only. Little Forrest Community is 110 kilometres away. Although the way is relatively flat, not all the paths and roads are paved. Please do not register for this trip unless you have completed one bike ride of 80 km or more in the last month.
