Art Blooms Earth Festival Family Fun Bike Ride:

“Family Fun Bike Ride” - Ride along with Mayor Chuck Cahn will start at Croft Farm, wind through Barclay Farm, then end back at Croft Farm.  

The SCH Way To Go task force is working with the township and Keswick Cycle to kick off this year’s Art Blooms Earth Festival with a 6.5 mile bike ride from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. Click here for more information. 

We need volunteers to direct riders at specific posts located on the sidewalk on the route in Barclay Farm from 8:45a.m. until about 10:15 a.m.

Volunteers should meet at Croft Farms at 8:15 a.m. so we can show people a map indicating where their posts are.   If you can ride your bike to the post, that will be great – if not, we suggest you have transportation to your Barclay Farm post; we may be able to arrange a ride to and from your post ending back at Croft Farm.

If you can help, please email John Berg at
