More than 500 cyclists took to Maine’s local farms on August 27 as part of the critically acclaimed Farm to Fork Fondo series. The crowd, ranging from professional athletes to first-time riders, joined together to celebrate Maine’s abundance of farm fresh food and to enjoy Maine’s southern coast and sweeping views.

The Farm to Fork Fondo - Maine event, hosted at Wolfe’s Neck Farm in Freeport, featured aid stations at six local farms placed along three routes ranging in distance from 13 - 92 miles. Participants enjoyed local goods such as carrot cake cookies, vegetable crudite, zucchini feta bruschetta at each aid station. “I think this might be the only bike ride where I’m gaining calories rather than losing them.” said one participant between bites at Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, home to the only remaining Shaker community in the world. Like all Farm to Fork Fondo events, participants found a barbecue waiting for them at the finish line with food from all the partner farmers and live music from Half Moon Jug Band. Unlike other Farm to Fork Fondo events, the Maine event is the only ride that serves lobster and mussels, making it truly unique.

Farm to Fork Fondo - Maine was the fifth event of the series' busy summer season. Farm to Fork Fondo was founded by Tyler Wren in 2014 after a 13 year career as a professional cyclist. With his passion for fitness and healthy living, Wren has worked with sponsors and farmers alike to produce the events throughout the Northeast. The series aims to celebrate fitness and eating locally by combining food, fitness, and traveling into one unforgettable experience.

Since it’s start in 2014, Farm to Fork Fondo has received widespread attention for both its concept and its model execution. Hailed as a one of the best trips of 2017 by Outside Magazine and as a top destination by SELF Magazine, this has been the series’ busiest season yet with more than 2,800 riders . Two new locations, New York’s Finger Lakes and the Berkshires in Massachusetts, were added to the already brimming roster. “I was excited to add more locations,"said Farm to Fork Fondo founder and director, Tyler Wren, "but the Maine event has always been a highlight simply because it has so much to offer. It's the perfect place for an event like this."
