Bike The Barns

It's hard to believe that it's already been 3 weeks since Bike the Barns. It was a great day, and definitely the most challenging bike ride I've ever done. The event is a fundraiser for Madison Area Community Supported Agriculture's (MACSAC) Partner Shares Program, which helps ensure that those with limited incomes have access to fresh, organic local produce. The day was well organized, and there was awesome food at the beginning, the end, and each of the stops. And thank goodness for those stops, or the hills might have gotten the best of us! Here are some photos from the event. Many thanks to the MACSAC staff and many volunteers who made this a great day for the riders. Special thanks to the farmers at Primrose Community Farm, Garden to Be, and Snug Haven Farm for opening their farms to what must have seemed like a logistical nightmare. Also, special thanks to Underground Food Collective and the other food producers who fed us so well. We look forward to riding again next year, but hope the hills won't be so frequent!
