Bike ride, farm tour and cheese and wine tasting on Saturday
Sacramento bicycle shop Edible Pedal is leading a bicycle ride and farm tour of Del Rio Botanicals in conjunction with the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op on Saturday.
According the the co-op’s website, Del Rio Botanicals is a West Sacramento Certified Organic farm on the Sacramento River, and Proprietor Suzanne Ashworth is an authority on seed saving and grows many unusual varieties.
On the tour, which costs $20, cyclists will ride at a leisurely pace to the farm, where a tour will be given and there will be tastings of goat cheese, farm-fresh tomatoes and local wine.
Event organizers recommend bringing sunscreen, a bicycle helmet and comfortable shoes for walking around the farm.
Riders are tentatively scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at Edible Pedal, located in the alley between 17th, 18th and L streets and Capitol Avenue.
Every Thursday we deliver a local event guide straight to your inbox, right in time to make your weekend plans.
