The ride is easy to moderate--almost entirely flat with the exception of one short hill. The ride will be done at a leisurely pace.

The total ground covered is approximately 7 miles with the longest continuous run going for about 2.5 miles.

We suggest only experienced bike riders, so no training wheels. Depending on your kids experience we recommend kids ages 10 or older with comparable rides under their belt. We will be traveling as a group from site to site.

Be prepared with bottles of water & any snacks you might need to keep you going. There are no bathrooms on the farm sites themselves but at two of the three locations access to nearby bathrooms is available. Wear sunscreen & any safety gear you like!
