Bike the Barns for fresh food for all!
Bike the Barns is a spectacular fundraising bicycle ride through the countryside southwest of Madison, Wisconsin. Online registration opens on July 7, 2009 at 10am, and closes on Tuesday, September 8 or when the ride is full. We are not able to offer ride-day registrations. This year's 52-mile ride highlights three local CSA and direct market farms and, once again, features gourmet local food presented by Underground Food Collective. This ride is a bit hilly, but all levels of cyclists are welcome and encouraged to be part of a wonderful day that benefits an important and meaningful cause.

This ride is our major fundraising event, and each year more participants help raise money for families and individuals improve nutrition by having access to fresh, organic vegetables from local farms. All proceeds, including pledges collected by bike riders, will support Madison Area Community Supported Agriculture Coalition's Partner Shares Program. Since Partner Shares’ inception in 1997, over 2,300 underserved and low-income households have received fresh local food.

Fabulous prizes will be announced and given to the top fundraisers at the Finale Celebration at Elver Park. We hope that you'll join us for a closing celebration with Bike the Barns volunteers, MACSAC farmers and staff at Elver Park from 4-7:30pm. Tickets to the Finale Celebration only are $20, and include a beverage and grilled pizza.
