Farm to Fork Fondo - Pennsylvania Post Ride

Ben Demars

More than 500 cyclists rode alongside the horse-drawn buggies of Amish Country on July 29 as a part of the Farm to Fork Fondo – Pennsylvania Dutch event. Dubbed a “party on wheels,” participants of the latest stop in the Farm to Fork Fondo series rode from farm to farm sampling local treats. Riders of Farm to Fork Fondo – Pennsylvania Dutch event ranged from age two to 74 with professional cyclists and amateur beginners riding in tandem (some participants did ride on tandem).

The event was part of the Farm to Fork Fondo series, a farm-to-table cycling series created by Tyler Wren 2014 after a 13 year career as a professional cyclist. The series holds 6 events throughout the Northeast, giving participants an unforgettable experience of fitness and food. This is the second year Pennsylvania Dutch Country has been a featured location of the Farm to Fork Fondo series. “Lancaster County, PA, is perfect for this type of event.” said Wren. ”With 6,000 farms, there’s an abundance of local food and the atmosphere is just so unique.”

This year’s event featured eight aid stations located at farms throughout Lancaster County, PA. Each aid station was equipped with fresh treats for the cyclists to try. “Amazing farm fresh food at every rest stop.” said Selene Yeager, a contributor to Bicycling Magazine. The Farm to Fork Fondo – Pennsylvania Dutch event is unique from other events in the series because of the traditional Amish farms scattered throughout the routes. “More animals per square mile than any ride I’ve ever done- and that’s saying something!”

Along with celebrating local food and cycling, the event also worked to give back to the local Lancaster community. Using a mix of donations from sponsors, participants, and raffle ticket sales, the event donated more than $2000 to local causes represented at the event by teams of volunteers.
