13th Annual Pemberton Slow Food Cycle

It's time to break out the bicycles and get ready for the 2017 Slow Food Cycle in Pemberton. This popular event happens the 3rd Sunday of August, which falls on August 20th this year. This will be Pemberton's 13th annual Slow Food Cycle, allowing consumers to connect with their food and the land.

Pemberton Slow Food Cycle 2017 -1

If you've never been to the Slow Food Cycle before it can be simply described as a 45 km bike ride up the Pemberton Valley combined with a farmers market along the way, but it's so much more than that. Pemberton's Slow Food Cycle connects you with your food, you get homegrown ingredients with a handmade approach, so you can truly appreciate 'slow food'.

Each year has seen an increase in both cyclers and farms opening their doors to the people, and why wouldn't it. the Slow Food Cycle celebrates taking your time, growing food at home, and eating things slow. Spend the whole day checking out every farm or just go for a few hours, it's up to you. With a flat and easy road to follow any route is a good one, just follow the signs as you go and enjoy the beautiful mountains and country scenery surrounding the Pemberton Valley.

Take your time as you pedal up the Pemberton Meadows Road, stop at stalls along the way to purchase delicious goodies for yourself. You may want to strap a basket on your bike because there's going to be lots of vendors selling local produce, crafts, art, food, and more. Or if you plan on doing a lot of shopping there will be a shuttle service which will allow you to shop and pick up your purchases when you get back to the start.

The Slow Food Cycle will go from 9AM - 3PM and start on Pemberton Meadows Road, north west of the Village of Pemberton, at the Meadows Playing Fields (Look for School District 48's Bus Garage). Cost to participate is only $5 per person or $20 per family (up to 6 members). Children 5 and under are free!

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  Ski shuttle

Our complimentary shuttle bus runs on weekends from the Lodge to and from Whistler Blackcomb.
