BEST TRIPS 2017
#5 - FARM TO FORK FONDO - BERKSHIRES
Former pro cyclist Tyler Wren knows what motivates riders up a steep climb: craft beer and the smell of slow-cooked brisket. Looking to lure more people onto bikes while supporting small New England farmers, Wren launched his Farm to Fork Fondo series in 2015. "Farms represent more than just gorgeous scenery," he says. "Behind every beautiful barn is a family doing work vital to our way of life." Between rest stops fueled with maple candies in Vermont or blueberry turnovers in Maine, riders cover ten-mile or even century-long rides lined with 5,000-foot King of the Hill climbs.
This fall, Farm to Fork Fondo returns to the Berkshires in western Massachusetts for a third year, starting with a Meet the Farmers Dinner at Hancock Shaker Village and culminating with live music and a barbecue by Wheelhouse Farm, a local farm-to-table caterer. Rides from $40 to $450; farmforkfondo.com
