“After retiring from my 13-year career in professional cycling, I founded the Farm to Fork Fondo series in 2015 with the goal of celebrating and supporting the symbiotic relationship between cyclists, farmers and beautiful open space," said Farm to Fork Fondo series founder Tyler Wren. "Our events in Hudson Valley, Vermont’s Champlain Islands, and Pennsylvania Dutch country have been hugely successful, and I am very excited to expand the series in 2019 to two new iconic farmland locations in Lousiville, Kentucky and Asheville, North Carolina."

One of the primary goals of the Farm to Fork Fondo series is to educate and motivate the cycling community to support the farming community. "The farms along our routes represent more than just gorgeous scenery – connected to every beautiful barn are families doing work that is vital to our way of life, and I want to encourage more cyclist-farmer social connections and motivate more cyclists to support their local farmers wherever they call home,” said Wren.
The festive and welcoming events have also brought new participants into the sport of cycling. Every Farm to Fork Fondo includes distance options for all abilities, gourmet aid stations at local farms, elegant farm dinners, activities for the whole family and more.
