There is 5,300 feet of climbing, so at least 27 rear cassette or triple chain ring is recommended. The ride is supported with rest stops and SAG wagons. A 44 mile option is available as well.

As a reminder, this is a ride not a race. So bring the entire family and enjoy Spring in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

Pop-Up Dinner Planned As Part of This Year's 
Floyd Artisan Trail Festivities 

Chantilly Farm is excited to be an official partner on this year's Floyd Artisan Trail and we'll be hosting a pop-up dinner on Saturday, June 8 here at the farm. 

Chef Ashleigh Ward of Grateful Bread will create a unique menu that celebrates the flavor and beauty of Floyd-grown ingredients in a thoughtfully artistic way. Join us for a wine tasting on our Pavilion Main Stage with creatively paired tapas-style hors d'oeuvres from 6pm- 7pm. We will then move into our grand Event Barn for our Tuscan influenced Dinner & Dessert, where you and your guests will have your choice of seats at one of our community-style banquet tables. Once seated, guests will be called by table to enjoy a local harvest buffet.

You may also choose to purchase a "Table for 8" to have a private table on our Mezzanine.

Drink tickets will be sold seperately for all wine and beer.

Music by Stella Trudel during the 6pm hour as guests enjoy beverages and hors d'oeurves on our pavilion stage. Cocobolo will provide live music during dinner, beginning at 7pm.

Full Menu and more details to come as the date approaches.

Tickets are limited and will only be available in advance. Don't miss out!
