Join Five Borough Bicycle Club's Urban Ag Bike Tour

http://5bbc.org/rides-events/day-rides/e-i-e-i-o-first-5bbc-urban-farm-ride
Join Five Borough Bicycle Club for an urban adventure! Did you know there are farms all over New York City? Visit 4 farms in 3 different boroughs; cross 4 bridges; and end with a BBQ and a celebratory ribbon cutting at a newly legitimized urban farm. (There may be sightings of dignitaries :-)

Starting in Manhattan, we will visit:

Randall's Island Farm http://randallsisland.org/environment/urban-farm

Manhattan’s Riverpark Farm http://www.riverparkfarm.com/RiverparkFarm/Default.htm

Red Hook’s Added Value Farm http://added-value.org/

and then end in Long Island City at

Smiling Hogshead Ranch https://www.facebook.com/SmilingHogsheadRanch

We can help Gil Lopez, co-founder of Smiling Hogshead Ranch, celebrate the official inauguration of this urban farm. Gil is expert at urban growing and will be the one guiding us through each farm explaining the different growing methods employed. Length: 33 miles; bring food (lunch will be late), plenty of water, sunscreen, a lock, and $$s for the BBQ lunch (burgers, veggies, etc.). Note that the BBQ will start after 3PM.

Nonbikers are welcome to come directly to Smiling Hogshead Ranch at 25-30 Skillman Ave at 3PM for the festivities. e-i-e-i-o!
