Welcome to the Food Justice Bike Ride
We support causes that help fight hunger by making nutritious food available at an affordable cost to anyone who needs it. This year’s event will support Just Roots Community Farm in Greenfield. Just Roots is a 501c3 non-profit cooperative farm that participates in the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) that provides qualifying low income families the opportunity to acquire nutritious food at a subsidized rate.
This is the second year for Food Justice Bike Ride and we have a couple of nice rides of 18 and 44 miles planned through Bernardston, Gill, Turners Falls, Montague, Sunderland, Deerfield, and Greenfield. The terrain is somewhat hilly but they will give you a good taste of Franklin County. This is a “feel good” event as you will enjoy the ride, refreshments, the community spirit, and a nice meal at the end. You’ll also feel great about furthering the cause of Food Justice and contributing to the well-being of a local non-profit farm while benefiting lower income families struggling to feed their own.

Before I go, I want to thank our partner, Franklin First Federal Credit Union and the early sponsors who have helped us pull this event together. It is really nice to see the business community at large take an active interest in our cause. Please check our the Sponsor page for more information.
Enjoy yourself and thanks again for participating.
