Tour of up to 6 different sites in Tifton and Tift County of agricultural interest. There is a short 6 mile loop that stops at an innovative garden in the city, a futuristic farmstead built with the latest green technologies, then a quaint farmers market. For those in good shape, there is a 16 mile (one way) spur that takes you to a PYO berry operation, a commercial vegetable production farm and then a small scale cut flower farm. Tours just 10-15 minutes at each site to end by noon.
Tours are brief and meant to highlight a variety of farming styles and production techniques from small scale sustainable to large scale commercial, with applied green technology innovations shown in practice. Routes follow gently rolling paved roads. Does involve crossing I-75 on an overpass near end of ride.. All riders must wear helmets and obey traffic laws. Event will take place rain or shine. Pre-registered riders guaranteed an event t-shirt (one per family) and refreshments at a couple of the farm sites. SAG available. All riders must wear a helmet and obey traffic laws.
