Farmland Cycling Tour





Event Date:
Saturday, September 15, 2012 – 9:00am to 2:00pm
Event Type:

Energize with fresh donuts, cider and apples (courtesy of local farmers), then pedal through the beautiful, rolling countryside of Dutchess and Columbia counties. Besides catching glimpses of the Hudson River, you’ll pass working farms Scenic Hudson has helped to protect. Along the cycling routes you’ll find water stations offering healthy produce and plenty of water. After returning to Poets’ Walk, enjoy a fabulous lunch while listening to live music. If you don’t want to ride, join us anyway for a fun day in the park.

Children under 16 years of age need to be attached to their adult’s bicycles or they must ride a tandem bike with an adult.

What you’ll need to bring: Bring a bike, helmet, clothing appropriate for cycling and plenty of water for your ride. Bicycle techs will be on site to inspect your bikes and give advice on proper seat height and tire pressure. Riders under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
