    For the 12th year in a row, farms throughout Philadelphia are opening their gates for cyclists on Saturday, September 9th as they pedal through the city in celebration of urban agriculture as part of the Urban Farm Bike Ride (UFBR)! Hosted by Weavers Way Co-op and presented by Lindy Communities, all funds raised throught the UFBR go to support Food Moxie's farm and nutrition education programs!

     

    There are two routes riders can choose from -- one clocks in at 23.7 miles and the other at 28.8 -- and each winds through Philadelphia's streets, stopping to explore urban agricultural sites and chat with some of the farmers who help maintain the city's vibrant farm landscape. We begin and end at Philadelphia Brewing Company (PBC). We start the day off right with healthy trail mix and iced coffee supplied by Equal Exchange, and end it with a beer and pizza party, thanks to PBC and local pizza shops! Ticket includes tour, t-shirt, snacks/water along the route, and after party beer and pizza! Join us as we celebrate Philadelphia's thriving farm ecosystem!
