Bike Fresh, Bike Local
Promoting Profitable Farms that Produce Healthy Food
A fabulous bike tour of the Chester County countryside and a celebration of local foods. Choose from a 25, 50 or 75 mile ride beginning and ending at Victory Brewing Co., followed by a delicious meal of local food and a Victory beer (for those 21 years or older).
The 2nd Annual “Bike Fresh Bike Local” is family friendly and a real community effort. Proceeds support PASA’s work in SE Pennsylvania on behalf of family farms. Last year’s ride attracted over 400 riders, many of who reported it was “the best and most beautiful ride ever.” The route takes riders “soaring along un-trafficked country roads next to small farms that tend to the land the way it should be tended, and raise the kind of foods we want our children to be eating,” says Royer Smith, one of the ”Bike Fresh Bike Local” organizers. “You’ll see bison and steers, horses and sheep, goats and chickens,” says Smith, a PASA supporter and executive chef at LaSalle University where he has staged local food events. “You’ll pass fields that were plowed by a farmer and his team of work horses, and you might have to slow down for horse-drawn vehicles on the road.”
This year an anticipated 600 to 800 riders will participate so it is bound to be quite a lively, fun, and locally delicious day.
