Slow Food Cycle Sunday Cyclists

Slow Food Cycle Sunday 2014 White VertPemberton's 10th annual Slow Food Cycle returns for 2014!

Slow Food Cycle Sunday is an opportunity to connect-town folk and city folk, consumers with their food, people with the land. The future of food is local!

The Slow Food Cycle Sunday began over a conversation at the Helmer's family farm in 2005. The seed of the idea to connect city folk to their food and farmers to the people who buy and eat their food was modest. There was no way of knowing that the event would spawn countless other Slow Food Cycling events around the world, or that the farmers and participants would grow to love this event so much that it would grow each year, becoming almost a festival of farm-to-table food and family cycling. Connecting with Slow Food was an obvious choice, as Anna Helmer was already a member and advocate for the movement.

The event combines a perfect summer day, slow cycling, and family farms to provide a festival that highlights what makes Pemberton an ideal community: We're just far enough from the bustle of the city, but have what's important: community, good food, great weather. Experiencing this lifestyle for the day gives families a great excuse to just be together enjoying sunshine, good food and a leisurely bicycle tour through the flat Pemberton Meadows. Musicians play while local chefs prepare food grown on-site. This event is an all-day festival. No need to rush, or feel like you must go to every farm. Just let your belly be your guide as you meander from farm to farm, meeting new people, eating local foods.

The 2014 Slow Food Cycle Sunday is being produced by Tourism Pemberton.

Check back for more details about the 2014 event as details will be added as as they are available.

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.
