Coming up with thoughtful, unique holiday ideas can be challenging. Often, despite lots of thought and perhaps some elbowing in lines on Black Friday your choice might end up collecting dust in the back of someone’s closet. During the bustle of the holiday season we often forget that experiences have been scientifically proven to bring us longer-lasting benefits than stuff. This year instead of another scarf, pair of shoes, or trinket, try giving experiences and the gift of togetherness. The Farm to Fork Fondo 2019 season is quickly approaching and our Entry Vouchers make a wonderful gift for your loved ones, family, a Yankee Swap, cycling group, or maybe it’s about time you bought something for yourself.
Gift togetherness this holiday season
In 2018 Farm to Fork Fondo participants traveled from as far away as Japan. The anticipation, paired with time spent training leading up to the event, makes for a welcomed distraction from the daily routine. The memories gained during event weekend provide greater joy than any new pair of shoes.
Still not sure? Listen to what our past participants have to say:
Maybe now you are thinking: To whom should I gift such an incredible experience?
Anyone with any type of bike can do one of our events. A Farm to Fork Fondo Entry Voucher is a great gift for riders of all levels, beginners to pro cyclists alike. Our rides vary in length from our Ramble Rides that range 8-12 miles up to a Gran Fondo of 80-100 miles. Our rides are beautiful, well-marked, and fully supported with professional course support, dispatch, police support, marshals, and directional signs every mile to keep you on track to a delicious and memorable finish. The energy is contagious, and we’ll wait while you try to think of another cycling event that has a farm tractor pace vehicle…
Wow your friends and family with a one-of-a-kind experience. Join us for a few hours or a few days. 2019 is sure to be an unforgettable season!
Now we’ve got you, right? Next question, how to wrap it?
We totally get it, it’s Christmas morning, or 3rd day of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or a birthday. You still desire the thrill of unwrapping a gift, and we want to play a part in that joy. Once you complete your online order you will receive a certification PDF in your email, print the certification, and get creative, here are a few ideas from our team.
Traditional – Envelope and card.
Think outside the box – wrap up and put in a box, inside another box
Coupon book – Make a booklet of experiences, include this voucher as well as a few things to lead up to the ride, a coupon that reads “good for one 20-mile ride together”, 30-mile ride, 50-mile ride and so on to work your way up in distance together. A bike tune-up at your local shop, and so on.
Cycling care package– include this voucher as part of a larger gift for the bike enthusiast in your life. Consider including bike tubes, lube, new bar tape, segment challenge tracker, Farm to Fork Fondo merchandise, etc.
Experiential gifts can also put a burden on the recipient, so it’s important to make sure you’ve made a good choice. If you are unsure of the length to gift a future Farm to Fork Fondo participant, we suggest you start small and grow. Opt for the shorter distance you know they will complete with confidence, as downgrades are not refundable. Participants are welcomed to upgrade for a very nominal fee any time prior to event day. Now what are you waiting for? Order an entry voucher today to lock in the best rate of the year. This is the perfect gift for anyone on your nice list.
