Pemberton Road Cycling Season Begins Today
Road Cycling From Pemberton: Where Will it Take You?
Today is the day to get out on the road from Pemberton and see where it takes you! Whether you choose Pemberton Meadows or the road to D'Arcy, Mother Nature certainly has helped us out...don't you feel like you could ride to Vancouver and back on a day like today?
Well, first step: Get your bike tuned up at the Bike Co. and get on the road!
When you train from Pemberton, you can choose to challenge yourself with gruelling switchbacks one day and an easy ride through the farmland the next. You can train for the Subaru Ironman or ride with your family to get ready for Slow Food Cycle Sunday. It can be a chance to see what your body can do, or to get to know your family a bit better as you cycle together...or both. Whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy the whole cycling season with us.
Cycling in Pemberton
Pemberton is an excellent place to start your road cycling training from. In any direction, you can get in a perfect ride for what you want to accomplish that day. You can start from Pemberton Village and head out toward D'Arcy, Whistler, or out the Pemberton Meadows Road along lush farmland. You decide.
If you choose the Pemberton Meadows Road, you'll ride along side mile after mile of easy, gorgeous farmland, with no steep hills or challenges. Just remember that there are no rest stops along the way, so you'll need to bring enough water and snacks to stay on your game. The ride is a great one for families, too, and happens to be part of the route for both the Slow Food Cycle Sunday and the Subaru Ironman.
Pemberton to Lillooet
If you prefer a bit of a challenge, try the route along highway 99 toward D'Arcy. This one has steep switchbacks and is 100 kilometres along a quiet highway. You'll definitely feel the challenge in your body on this ride. But though you are riding on a highway, traffic is rare. You'll likely see wildlife, including some of our wild Pemberton horses, so watch out!
So get on your bike and head out the Pemberton Meadows Road today! We hope you have a lovely time.
