South Jersey Cycling Tour

Appel Farm is pleased to present its third annual South Jersey Cycling Tour sponsored by Subaru of America! Cruise the picturesque countryside between Elmer and Pilesgrove on this rolling ride, which begins in Salem County at Appel Farm, and takes you past historic peach farms and fields of corn and through the lush green woods of Gloucester County. Novice riders who are looking for a leisurely ride can participate in an 8 mile loop, stopping at a designated point to fill up your water bottles with fresh water. Experienced riders can continue on to gorgeous Auburn Road Vineyards, where you will stop for a break, refill your water bottles and then head back to Appel Farm for a 28.7 mile loop.
Auburn Road Vineyards is also our Art of Winemaking partner! After finishing the SJ Cycling Tour, make sure to stop my the Art of Winemaking Tent, where you can sample their premier vintages and meet their winemakers!
