GALLATIN VALLEY – After four rides to four different Gallatin Valley farms this summer, the Bike to Farm series is continuing in August. As of late July, 35 people had participated in the guided group bike rides and farm tours.
There will be two rides in mid-August, one day trip and one overnight. Starting at 10 a.m. in Bozeman from the Leaf and Bean Coffee House (35 West Main Street), the rides will head out to a local farm, where farmers will give an hour-long tour.
Scheduled farm visits include a day trip to Slabtown Farm on Sunday, Aug. 12, and an overnight trip to Norris Hotsprings, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 18 – 19.
Riders will be need to bring their own lunch and be prepared to ride 20 to 75 miles. The Norris includes camping, music, dinner and a free soak in the hot springs. There will be a nominal fee for this trip.
The Human-Powered Mountaineers, 406 Brewery and the Leaf and Bean Coffee House sponsor the rides. Check out Human-Powered Mountaineers Facebook events page for more information, or the blog’s event page at humanpoweredmountaineers.blogspot.com.
