Are you thinking of visiting Pemberton this August?
Make sure you plan to be here for the annual Slow Food Cycle. This year the event will be on Sunday August 21st.
Join locals and visitors on this epic bike ride to celebrate locally grown food, the farmers and the beautiful Pemberton valley. The Slow Food Cycle is a great event for families and friends. Enjoy this relaxing bike ride (it's all flat!) and incredible views of the mountains and Lillooet river.
The Slow Food Cycle starts in downtown Pemberton and follows the Pemberton Meadows Road almost until the end of the Valley. The full ride is just over 50km round trip. Along the way you will be able to stop at various vendors and farmers offering food, produce and other treats. Vendors include Pemberton Meadows Natural Beef, produce from Shaw Creek Farms, Across the Creek Organics, North Arm Farms, Helmer's Organic Farm, McEwan's Farm and the Pemberton Coffee Co. Make sure you bring a bag and cash to for your purchases. The event is free.
The Slow Food Cycle is expected to see 3000 riders come out and experience this amazing event. This event is well known throughout the Sea to Sky corridor and boasts to "blows the fast-food drive-through away!" The Slow Food Cycle starts at 8am. There will be an AugustFest Beer Garden in Pioneer Park following the ride from 3-7pm.
You can reserve and rent bikes at the Bike Co. (1-604-894-6625) which is located next to the Pony Restaurant at the start of the cycle.
