Mission Mountain Area Pedal to Plate will host its second annual ride through the Mission Valley, showcasing local farms and agriculture Sunday, Sept.22, 2019.
The 40-mile ride begins and ends at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Ronan. Along the route, cyclers can stop to taste locally-produced foods, including Dixon Melons cantaloupe, Fresh Roots popsicles, homemade sourdough bread from Crow’s View Farm, and artisanal cheese from Flathead Lake Cheese in Polson. A locally sourced dinner will be catered by Trina Felsman of Qene’s Catering.
Last year, MMAPP hosted almost 80 riders who explored local farms and experienced the beauty of the Mission Valley.
After raising money through sponsorships and rider fees, MMAPP sponsored a second event this spring, with a shorter route for families. The Mission Mountain Family Pedal to Plate in May promoted bike safety, local food and sustainable agriculture.
Registration for September’s event is $50 and is open until 5 p.m. Monday, September 9. Register at www.bikereg.com/mmapp.
