SAHC’s Land Protection Director Michelle Pugliese, climbing Doggett Mountain during the 2013 Sandy Mush Cycle to Farm

It’s harvest time again —And, time for the second annual Sandy Mush Cycle to Farm! This year’s ride will take place on Saturday, October 11. Along the route, riders will pass pass through the scenic Sandy Mush landscape (enjoying views of 6,000 acres protected by SAHC).

This year, SAHC is sponsoring the safety stop at the Reeves Homeplace, where we are currently working on a new farmland conservation easement. The safety stop will be positioned before riders climb to the summit of Doggett Mountain.

As with all Cycle to Farm events, created by Velo Girl Rides, the Sandy Mush location provides participants with a tour of local farms by bicycle, stunning scenery of this beautiful area, tasty food samples crafted by the farms, and products for sale at every farm (including at the Finish, Addison Farms Vineyard).   And, of course, the Fabulous After Party!
