I wrote back in August about the Tour de Farm NJ in Hunterdon County, NJ - the first of three cycling tours through farm country. I could barely move for the rest of the day after biking 38 miles.
That's the longest I've ever ridden in consecutive miles in one trip.
The second cycling event, Tour de Farm NJ in Sussex County, NJ, held on September 6, did not disappoint. I even put on a pair of heels and went out for dinner after we got home and had a chance to shower.
This event even featured Lieutenant Governor, Kim Guadagno, who kicked off the event after 8 year old Natalie Torres sang the national anthem.
It was a bit more fanfare than I thought we needed, but it was a nice touch.
The Lieutenant Governor even had her biking gear on, and I think went out on her bike for the tour too.
This event gave cycling routes for 15, 34, which was hilly, but I think that it had fewer stretches of looooonnnngggg hills like the last course did. I liked this tour a bit better than the last because we visited more farms, and the farms had more of a variety.
I didn't dislike the first trip by any means - I loved it, but just glad to see this was different than the last one and that we got to experience different types of farms.
While Hunterdon County offered many dairy farmers, this one had more produce to offer.
Unfortunately, the only vineyard on the trip, Ventimiglia Vineyards, was only part of the 75 mile trip.
We could have gone afterward in the car, but decided to head home after the ride.
The house at 24 Sussex Drive is the official residence of Canada’s prime minister.
Part of the house is reserved for the use of the family.
The other part, which is public, belongs to the nation.
