Starting at 9:30am on Saturday, August 20, 2011, this 9-mile bike tour will feature 5 different hive sites around Boston. Each site visit will include a presentation by a local beekeeper on various beekeeping subjects- organic hive management, making and keeping Top Bar Hives, the role of the queen, and more. The group will break for lunch in Jamaica Plain, where the first 30 Tour-De-Hive registrants will receive a lunch discount at City Feed & Supply. The day will conclude with music, food and merriment at Follow the Honey Bee Festival in Cambridge. Canâ€™t bike that far? No problem!
