The group behind chef Spike Gjerde’s restaurants is teaming up with Race Pace Bicycles to again host a ride through some of Baltimore’s urban farms.
The second annual Tour de Farms, hosted by Foodshed, Gjerde’s restaurant group, is set to start at 9 a.m. Sept. 17.
Beginning at Bird in Hand in Charles Village, the bike tour will stop at four urban farms (Whitelock Community, Boone Street Farm, Real Food Farm and Living Classrooms), as well as three of Foodshed’s properties. Growers at each farm will speak to tour guests about what it takes for their urban farms to thrive.
Tickets, $75, include a commemorative water bottle, four farms visits, and stops and snacks at three of Foodshed’s restaurants: coffee at Bird in Hand, lunch at Parts & Labor in Remington, and a pig roast and beer at Sandlot in Harbor Point to cap off the ride.
Tickets are available through MissionTix, and a portion of their sales will go back to the each of the farms along the tour.
