Off the Eaten Path | Radical Roots Community Farm Event - June 17, 2017

The Ride | There are two distance options for this event, 10 and 25 miles. Both are pleasantly challenging, self-guided group rides on the rolling country roads of Keezletown, at the base of Massanutten Mountain. Route markers will be provided for guidance along the way, and the route consists of 100% paved roads with the exception of the start/finish on Flook Lane where the farm is located. The 250 mile ride begins promptly at 4:30PM, and the 10 miler at 5:30PM, both from Radical Roots Community Farm in Keezletown.

After the Ride | Upon returning to the farm, the event will shift gears to a relaxing meal and evening on the farm. The meal will be an authentic farm table supper set on a hill overlooking the rolling hills of  Keezletown. The food will be prepared by Taste a Food Company. It will include fresh ingredients straight off the farm (sourced from Radical Roots and other farms in the Keezletown area), and will be served family-style. The menu will be announced to registered participants prior to the event. Don't worry...it will be fantastic! Please indicate ahead of time if you have any food allergies so we can make any necessary substitutions.

Dates, Deadlines & Info | Online registration closes Thursday, June 15th at 11:59PM. Day of registration is NOT available due to the nature of the event. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for a later date.
