Philadelphia Urban Farm Bike Tour ’08
We’re planning another Philadelphia Urban Farm Bike Tour for this summer, starting again at Weavers Way Farm, which has grown by leaps and bounds since last year, and ending up again at Yards Brewery–same place, but new brews and a new name–Philadelphia Brewing Company. The ride’s planned for Saturday, July 19th, 8:30 a.m. to roughly 3:00 p.m.
There will be a few changes and additions this year. Here’s a quick overview of those changes:
1. We’re looking to add another farm to the urban mix–Teens4Grow, at 8th and Poplar (not far off the path to GreensGrow Farm).
2. The women from DC who took the three-month urban farm bike tour of the Northeast will be joining us again. And, for those who are interested, they’ll be showing a work in progress version of the film they’re making about their trip at 5 pm on Saturday the 19th, probably at Video Library in Mt. Airy.
3. We’re asking for a donation of $10, payable at the start of the ride in cash, to help support the farms we visit (it will be split evenly between them) — and to pay for the pizza that will be delivered to the brewery at the end of the ride.
Tell your friends about the ride. I’d love to hear if any of my readers are going to be joining us! More details, including a full route, will be available closer to the time. Rest assured you don’t have to be a rockstar cyclist to complete this tour. We go slow and talk a lot along the way. And most every hill is downhill, I swear!
