Bike the Farms Event
Thursday - August 9, 2018
4:00pm and 6:00pm
Join the City of Lafayette for an informative, family-friendly tour of Lafayette‘s local agricultural scene. Participants will also experience the new Activate Lafayette Mobile App and get acquainted with riding on the Lafayette Walk and Wheel Route.
Riders will meet at Isabelle Farm for a tour of the organic farm operation and retail farm stand located on the Thomas Open Space property.
