Bike the Barns 2013

Update 9/15: Barns were biked! It was a good day and a great ride, raising over $32,000 for Partner Shares.

Lunch was at Tipi was just five miles into the shorter route we rode. Sausage on warm tomato-zucchini sauce, bread, greens with fennel, very tasty apples with bleu cheese and the best watermelon of the summer.


Afternoon snacks were at Scotch Hill. (Check out the blog Condividere un Pasto by a Scotch Hill CSA subscriber.) We ate chocolate ice cream cookie sandwiches by Batch Bakehouse among the friendliest farm animals ever - hi Carlos the Cat! The hosts were amazingly gracious, serving much-needed hot coffee right out of their own kitchen. No goats, but here are some chicken pics:


And pizza from La Fortuna's 900-degree oven - so good! There were also tasty pork tacos from Willy St. Coop, but Nichole had the camera and JM was done eating by the time we met back up at a picnic table.

Thank you for reading and rooting and pledging. Hope we can do it again next year!

Bike the Barns is Sept. 15! It's one of our favorite days of the year and we're so glad to be able to get out there and ride again. If you're so moved, encourage us with a pledge, or find another rider you know and encourage them. Thank you!

Proceeds benefit Partner Shares, a program of FairShare CSA Coalition that provides fresh food share assistance to the community. There's more on how that works from last year's Bike the Barns post.

We'll try to bring back a good ride report and some food pictures. Or at least goat snaps.
