Boggy Creek Farm Picnic Ride This Saturday

This Saturday is Austin on Two Wheel's Boggy Creek Farm Picnic Tour, the second (formerly third until we rescheduled the Pampered Pedal to May 1) in our three part social ride series Discover the City on Two Wheels, and we hope you will join us. (The ride is limited to 48 people, and we currently have only 15 spots left. Please register today to secure your spot.)

This tour will give you an opportunity to explore one of Austin's best organic urban farms followed by a picnic lunch at the farm prepared by local chef Chris Howard.

We'll start at our ride host BoConcept at 430 W 2nd St in the 2nd Street District and take a leisurely ride a few miles to the east to Boggy Creek Farm. You will have a chance to purchase locally grown produce fresh from the field and will be guided on a personal tour of the farm. After the tour, we'll have a meal cooked with ingredients from Boggy Creek Farmand a brief Q&A with the chef on how you can prepare this meal yourself. After lunch, we'll ride back together to BoConcept where we'll have a drawing for gift certificates from Bicycle Sport Shop and BoConcept. Total ride distance approximately 8 miles round trip.

Farm tour, bike valet, ride guides, and your choice of a turkey or vegetarian lunch are included in the ride registration. BYOB.

Picnic Menu
Greens from Boggy Creek with a creamy red chile dressing, local feta

Choice of :
- Turkey breast with smoked tomato mousseline and vegetables from Boggy Creek
OR
- Boggy Creek Vegetables and Boudin Blanc with smoked tomatoes

Strawberries with local cheese and honey
Boggy Creek Farm Picnic
Sponsored by Bicycle Sport Shop, Barton Place, and Barden Capital Management & hosted by BoConcept

DATE:Saturday, April 24, 2010

TIME:Meet up at 11:30 AM, Leave at 12:00 PM (please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to departure for check-in). Ride will end back at BoConcept at approximately 3 PM.

LOCATION: BoConcept, 430 W 2nd St

COST:$35/person, Ride day registration $40. Bring a friend and save $5! 2 persons registration: $65, Ride day cash registration $75. (Ride is limit to 48 riders.) Register here.

RIDE PACE:These are social rides so we will be riding at a pleasant social pace and no one will be dropped. Our ride guides will be wearing identifiable shirts and will keep the group together and make sure no one is left behind. This ride is about the simple pleasure of riding with friends, not competition or workouts. If you want to race or get in a workout, we'd suggest you do that before the ride.
