Gathering Ground will host its first Farm and Field Bike Tour on June 27. During this family-friendly ride of about 14 miles, riders will enjoy Washington Island’s rural beauty while learning about its agricultural projects. With tours of Island Orchard Cider’s orchard; Sweet Mountain Farm’s bee farm; Gathering Ground’s orchards, vineyards and grazing sheep; and Island Harvest’s strawberry patch, participants will also get a literal taste of local flavors.
The ticket price of $35 per adult and $15 per child includes a locally sourced box lunch from Hotel Washington, fresh strawberries and cider tastings. Island Adventure is offering a discount on full-day bike rentals ($30), and Burleys and e-bikes are also available.
