Photos Bike to Farms ride 2014

Last Sunday we went on the second Bike to Farms ride. This was our biggest ride so far. I was hoping for at least 20 people, but we had 40! You can read about the ride in my column in the Maple Ridge News.

Here are photos taken during the ride by some of the participants:

Matt and Deanna Laity gave us a tour of their farm, which has been farmed by the Laiteys since 1879

We had a little 4H demonstration

Matt showed us how the cows are milked

Lorea grows many varieties of tomatoes, and we got to try some

Some of us loaded up on fresh fruits and veggies at Red Barn

We should have taken the group photos earlier. This one was taken at Red Barn, probably an hour after the planned finish time of the ride, so a number of people already had to leave before the photo was taken.
