Get ready to enjoy a beautiful day during our 40 Miles for 40 Years Ride! The ride will start and end at Root Down Farm, the site of an historic barn that POST recently rebuilt using traditional methods and locally sourced redwood.
The ride is one of several community events being held this year to celebrate POST’s 40th Anniversary. Cyclists will ride by some of the most important properties protected during our $200-million Saving the Endangered Coast Campaign such as the iconic Pigeon Point Lighthouse, and many of the farms and ranches POST is protecting through our Farmland Futures Initiative.
For experienced road cyclists, the route will be fairly easy, with gently rolling hills. Less experienced riders may find the route more challenging. We will ride on public roads with several miles of the route on Highway 1. So start training and be ready to ride!
Tickets include a delicious, locally sourced lunch at Root Down Farm including dessert, beer and other refreshments following the ride.
POST would like to acknowledge and thank Whole Foods Market, our generous sponsor for this event. Whole Foods is dedicated to giving back to the local community and is passionate about supporting local causes.
About Root Down Farm
In 1997, POST protected the Root Down Farm as part of the 6,857-acre Cloverdale Coastal Ranches. Since then, we have leased the land and the barn to small, direct market organic farmers. In the summer of 2016, POST rebuilt the Root Down Barn with a team of local craftsmen and volunteers from the community using locally sourced materials, creating a landmark to last for centuries.
