Cycle Tour ready to roll
Calling All Farms! Farms Invited to be a Stop on the popular Cycle Tour
Farms and food and beverage producers are invited to be a stop on the 4th annual Comox Valley Farm Cycle Tour, Saturday, September 26, 2015.
The event invites cyclists of all ages and skill levels to visit a myriad of farms and learn first-hand from producers about their best practices, operations and products. Unlike past years where there have been specific routes and farms included, the event is open to any farm or food and beverage producer in the Valley, leaving the cyclists to choose their route and hand pick the farms they wish to visit.
Over the years some farms have done tours of their operations, others offered sit down talks and demonstrations, while others presented music, activities and tastes for the cyclists to experience upon arrival.
The event allows the public to learn about the regions progressive producers and practices, and celebrates the important role agriculture plays in the Comox Valley.
Participating farms are marketed through a campaign undertaken by Comox Valley Economic Development and Tourism, in partnership with the Comox Valley Farmers Market.
For farms that participate in the Saturday morning Farmers Market, they would be listed as being open for cyclists in the afternoon only that day. FMI cvfarmcycletour.com or call (250) 334-2427 x 222.
