Black Farm Tour 2023
Celebrate our roots and our culture
Black Owned Farms
A sacred connection to the soil
Join us to support the teens of Triangle Bikeworks as we come together to celebrate our roots and our culture. To know yourself is to know your power. Retrace the steps of our ancestors on the Underground Railroad to Freedom.
We have a sacred connection to the land and soil. Let’s reclaim that connection by visiting Black owned farms and historic sites while you make a way on either your hundred mile, 66 Mi, or 40 Mi journeys through eastern North Carolina.
This year’s Black Farm tour is fun, mostly flat and fast.
Home of this year’s Black Farm Tour
Come steep yourself deep into the history of the Black Second Congressional Caucus, the home of the great Thelonious Monk and Buck Leonard of the Negro Baseball League. Celebrate the locale of the Halifax Resolves, and be in the historic location of Martin Luther King’s first rendering of the I Have a Dream speech. The history is here. Waiting for you.
Similar to the intention of last year’s tour, we look to support Black owned businesses in Eastern North Carolina whenever possible and elevate Black Culture.
We’ll have many events for you to enjoy the weekend – Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
You don’t want to miss it!
Since 2011, teens in the Triangle Bikeworks programs have been zigzagging across the country discovering untold history with tours of 700 miles or more.
This year’s tour will be from Selma, AL to Carrboro, NC.
Very similar to the history you’ll discover when you come out east and tour the bucolic countryside of Eastern North Carolina.
Halifax County, Rocky Mount, Princeville, and the Buck Leonard home are just a few spaces of history you’ll discover.
Every dollar raised will support a teen cyclist. Bringing Black and Brown teens to the wonderful sport of cycling.
