Bike the Barns

Whallonsburg Grange
Essex, NY

Bike the Barns is a fully supported recreational road cycling tour supporting the rich agricultural movement of the North Country. This one-day Champlain Valley farm-by-bike 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 will be used to support local farms and a portion of every rider's event fee will go directly into the FarmShare fund.

Registration Includes:

  • Support on the route (Flat tire? No worries)
  • Event T-shirt
  • Finish Line food, drink, and entertainment
  • Farm tour stops (see the farms - connect with your food!)

There's a ride for everyone!

At the day's end, join participating farms, riders and their families, and members of the community for a celebration of local agriculture and food, craft beverages, and music.

Registration is now open. Learn more and sign up today.
