This event combines two of our favorite activities: cycling and eating. After a leisurely rolling start at Stoney Brook Vineyards in Troutville, you'll follow a gorgeous 40ish mile loop  through scenic Botetourt County, stopping at 4-6 farms along the way.

At each farm stop, you'll be able to take a short tour before you head out to the next location. Products from each farm will be available for purchase. Your purchases will be delivered to the start/finish at Stoney Brook Vineyards. We'll also have a few local vendors at the finish.

We hope you'll have worked up an appetite by the finish, because the ride concludes with a farm-to-table meal, featuring local and regional products. It's a great way to connect with other great folks who share your passion for good riding and great food!

The registration fee is $125 per rider and includes a well-marked route, two fully stocked aid stations, a branded mason jar mug, and a farm-to-table meal. This event will be capped at 100 riders and we expect to fill up, so register soon! 

** Note: Keep August 21st open for a rain date, just in case!

The Start

The Harvest Tour begins with a tour of Stoney Brook Vineyards located at 516 Stoney Battery Road, Troutville. You can start cycling the route anytime between 8:30 am and 9:30am.

The Meal

The farm-to-table meal will will be available between 3pm and 5pm, so plan your start accordingly, with some extra time to hang around the vineyard.

The Route

We're still finalizing the route for 2022. There won't be any mountains to climb, but there's no such thing as a flat road in Botetourt! Expect some hills and significant elevation gain for the route.

At each farm stop, you'll visit with the farmers and get a glimpse of their operations. You will also be able to make purchases at some of the farms. Any items you purchase will be delivered to the finish at Stoney Brook Vineyards.

While the route is completely on paved roads, you should expect a few short gravel drives. A gravel bike is a great option, but not required! If you wear road cleats, bring cleat covers or pack a pair of alternate shoes for the farm stops. Two of the farm stops will feature aid stations with snacks and water.
