This year we are excited to welcome Wrenegade Sports to Crystal Spring Farm for their 2016 Farm to Fork Fondo bike ride on August 28.
There’s no better way to experience gorgeous landscapes, diverse local agriculture and farm to fork freshness than from the seat of your favorite bicycle.
~ One of “10 Must-Ride US Gran Fondos in 2016” – Gran Fondo Guide
This event is a wonderful mash-up of farm tour, bike riding, and excellent local food. The ride starts at Wolfes Neck Farm, and includes everything from a short kids “ramble” to a professional-level fondo ride of 90 miles out to Pineland Farm and back.
A key aid station is at our Crystal Spring Farm, where hundreds of riders will be stopping through the day.
The organizers of the ride have made the generous program to reward exceptional volunteer teams by donating to the non-profit that they represent.We are hoping to establish a small team of volunteers to provide rider support at Crystal Spring Farm on the morning (or afternoon) of the ride. The team would be at the aid station providing water and snacks, and talking to riders about the region and Crystal Spring Farm.At the end of the day the riders will vote for their favorite team, and based on votes each team will get a portion of donated funds to be given to their non-profit.
As Wrenegade says: “It is widely known that the success of any endurance sports event can be credited to the dedication, creativity and enthusiasm of its volunteers. In order to truly show our appreciation for the hard work of our volunteers, we’ve created a competition that will give them a chance to win cash prizes for local farms and charitable organizations of their choosing.”
