Bike the Barns

Bike the Barns is FairShare CSA Coalition’s largest fundraiser. Proceeds from the ride benefit the organization and the Partner Shares Program, which helps low-income families afford farm-fresh veggies. When riders sign up for Bike the Barns, they help families access food grown right in their community by a CSA farmer.

The event features farm tours, gourmet local food, craft libations, on-farm activities and live music. Join us as we bike and bus to ensure fresh food for every family!

Typically amateur radio participation includes SAG vehicles and communications at Rest Stops.
