The Cycling Community is invited to celebrate National Bike Month with a 4.5 mile Bike Ride from Fresno High School to Vineyard Farmer’s Market on Shaw and Blackstone. Meet at 1839 Echo Avenue at 9am for a pre-ride chat before the ride. We’ll head out at 9:15am.

It is Vineyard Farmer’s Market’s 44th anniversary! Remember your shopping bags, cash, backpacks or panniers. You can pick up all the fixing’s for your Cinco de Mayo festivities.

We will pass at least 4 Little Free Libraries on our way. Bring a book if you’d like to trade!


It is also Comic Book Day on May 4. Some folks are interested in visiting a comic book shop before returning to our starting point. Others are interested in visiting Ampersand Ice Cream when we get back to Fresno High School.  Don't forget to wear your Star Wars Shirts because it's also "May the 4th be with you!"


Please register and sign the waiver.


5 Reasons to Cycle to the Farmer’s Market

1. **Community Engagement and Shopping Local:** Cycling to the Farmer’s Market fosters a sense of community while supporting local businesses. It encourages interaction with fellow market-goers and promotes a vibrant local economy.
   
2. **Healthy Lifestyle:** Cycling not only benefits the environment but also contributes to personal health. Combined with the fresh, nutritious food available at the market, it promotes overall well-being and vitality.

3. **Prevention of Food Waste:** Shopping by bike encourages mindful purchasing habits, as the limited carrying capacity prompts shoppers to buy only what they need. This helps reduce food waste and supports sustainable consumption practices.

4. **Access to Fresh Produce:** Farmer’s Markets offer some of the freshest produce available, often sourced from farms within a short distance of the market location. This ensures that the food is both flavorful and nutritious, and farmers are readily available to provide cooking tips and advice.

5. **Convenience and Frequency:** With markets like Vineyard Farmer’s Market open twice a week, cycling becomes a convenient and enjoyable way to access fresh, locally grown food regularly. It’s a win-win for both your taste buds and the environment!
