We are very excited to announce this year's Cycle for Sight will by a Farm-to-Fork cycling tour that will take place just 1 hour north of Toronto at Sheldon Creek Dairy.

This 6th generation family-owned micro dairy prides itself on producing milk as traditionally and naturally as possible. And our rest stops and finish-line party will also include local, farm-fresh food from neighbouring farms.

Grassy pasture, swing set and three dairy cows.
