2013 Slow Food Cycle Sunday - Aug 18, 2013

Date:    Sunday, August 18, 2013
Time:    8 AM to 3 PM
Where:  Pemberton Meadows

Slow Food Cycle Sunday 2013A celebration of food, farmers and the joys of biking, Slow Food Cycle Sunday Pemberton blows the fast-food drive-through away. A pedal-powered trip through the natural buffet that is Pemberton Meadows farmland, to meet local growers and sample produce fresh from the field.

The World Watch Institute reports that the average food item eaten in North America has traveled 2,500 to 4,000 kilometres from farm to table. The distance between good food and your table is as short as a 50 kilometre bike ride.

The Slow Food Cycle Sunday brings awareness to how important locally grown foods are to all of us, and how delicious local foods are!

The bike ride is a way to inform people of the importance of farmland, to give townspeople an opportunity to spend the day in the country and to give farmers and consumers a chance to connect.

Slow Food Cycle Sunday Cyclists

Relax after the ride at AugustFest. Join in the fun at Rotary's Bavarian style beer garden and family BBQ. Live music & a Bouncy Castle for the kids plus locally grown beef bratwursts and cold beer are just some of choices offered. Entrance is by donation and all funds will go towards building a playground at the elementary school.

Visit the Slow Food Cycle Sunday website for more details.

Whistler Alternative

When visiting Whistler, consider staying at Pemberton Valley Lodge. We offer several advantages over Whistler hotels…

 1  Only 20 minutes

You can get to the Village faster from our Lodge than you can from some parts of Whistler Resort.

 2  Save money

Whistler hotels typically charge for parking. We don't. And you get bigger rooms for your dollar.

 3  Free ski shuttle

Our free Whistler shuttle bus runs daily from the Lodge to and from Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
