Location: Tucker Farms, 64 Hobart Rd, Gabriels, NY 12939

Bike the Barns is a fully supported recreational road cycling tour supporting the rich agricultural movement of the North Country. This one-day experience will feature farm tour stops staged along the route where you can personally connect with the local food revolution. The agritourism experience culminates with a finish line local food celebration complete with a meal, beverages and live music. All proceeds are used to support local farms and a portion of every rider's event fee will go directly into the FarmShare fund.



Bike the Barns is a casual bicycle tour that highlights and celebrates the agricultural diversity and locally-produced products of the North Country. Each route will feature the region's natural beauty as well as the small towns and villages that are supported by Adirondack North Country farms and farm families.

Bike the Barns will feature four different route options to suit rider preferences. The shortest route is the "Seed" Family Ride with a distance of approximately 13 miles. Sprout, Veggie and Harvest routes are approximately 24, 47 and 79 miles long. The routes will be finalized and released soon so check back for more information!

Remember, this is not a race! We invite you to take your time, enjoy the views, meet the farmers and experience the region's local food revolution!


Farm Stops
