The Farm To Fork Fondo – PA Dutch is unlike any other ride you have experienced and we have an exclusive offer to our readers, use code MOVEMENTSPORTS, and get 15% off.
Created by former pro cyclist, Tyler Wren, the event aims to bring awareness to supporting local agriculture by taking you through beautiful farmland and stopping at featured farms that host the ride’s aid stations. Riders have four supported courses to choose from, including the family-friendly 9 mile Ramble Ride and the challenging 87 mile Gran Fondo. Although the Farm To Fork Fondo is not a competitive event, they have included Ride With GPS segments marked on the road along the route where you can challenge yourself and friends to win one of the King or Queen of the Chicken’s jerseys for the fastest riders up each segment.
The PA Dutch starts and finishes at the Country Barn, just outside of Lancaster, PA. Each course will take you further into the rich agricultural countryside of Lancaster County, where you’ll pass through the heart of Amish Country. At each aid station, you’ll have a chance to experience the farm and taste a special gourmet treat that represents the farm’s specialty. Once you cross the finish line, you’ll have a gourmet, Farm To Fork barbecue waiting for you, along with music and fun for the whole family. Bianchi, one of the event’s sponsors, will also be giving away two bikes at end of each event.
The PA Dutch is fourth of six events in the Farm To Fork Fondo Series. Starting the year in Hudson Valley, NY, they travel to the Finger Lakes and up to the mountains of Vermont, before coming south to Pennsylvania. The Fondo heads back north to the coast of Maine before finishing up in the Berkshires.
