The Treasure Valley Food Coalition is pleased to announce our inaugural bike tour Sunday, September 20th in southwestern Idaho. The 50 mile loop will begin at Hat Ranch Winery on Plum Road at 9:00 AM and take you to farms and wineries throughout Canyon County. Along the way you will taste fresh, local fruit, grilled (lamb) merguez sausage, grilled fingerling potatoes, local cheese and crackers, and sample some of Idaho’s award winning wines. Upon returning to Hat Ranch Winery, you will be treated to a catered luncheon from Three Girls Catering featuring local meats and produce while Hat Ranch pours wine for tasting. When you are ready to head home, you will leave with be a reusable jute shopping bag filled with local produce, tokens to use at the Boise Farmer’s Market, and coupons for the Boise Co-Op. Our route will take you along the Snake River, past Lake Lowell, and through the rolling farmland, vineyards and orchards of southwestern Idaho. The route has been biker-tested and approved. Additionally the ride will be supported by mechanics, sag-wagon, and ham radio communication. Three rest stops along the way will provide tastings, water, medical reserve corps volunteers and pink porta-potties!
