Slow Food Cycle: Experience a Taste of Pemberton

Have you ever wanted to experience a farmers market on wheels? The Pemberton Slow Food Cycle is just that. Peddle your way up the beautiful Pemberton Valley stopping at farms and vendors along the journey. Connect with fellow cyclers and the local farming community along the lovely trip up the valley.

The Slow Food Cycle Pemberton

Started back in 2004, The Slow Food Cycle has grown significantly from its humble roots as a way to introduce farmers to the local buyers & visiting guests. The event now attracts a few thousand people every year who love the showcase of sustainable farming in the Pemberton.

This year the event is from 9 am to 3 pm on Sunday, August 19, 2018.

Pemberton Slow Food Cycle Family

The event is simple enough for almost anyone to do. Grab a pedal-powered vehicle, whether it be a classic bicycle, a unicycle, a tandem bike, or a homemade contraption of your own (there's usually a few).

Once you've got your mode-of-transportation set, you can head to the event registration booth located at the Meadows Fields (locals probably know it as the Old Community Centre grounds). You can also skip the lines by pre-registering online at the Tourism Pemberton website before the event.

After you're registered, it's time for the adventure to begin. Make your way up the Pemberton Meadows at your own pace, stopping whenever, and wherever you want! Much like a choose your own adventure book, you call the shots here, turn around whenever you'd like and call it a day.

Slow Food Cycle Sunday Pemberton Event

There are usually over a dozen farms that participate in the Slow Food Cycle, including notable farms such as Bandit Farms, Across the Creek Organics, and Helmer's Organic Farm. These locations are a few of the can't miss stops with tons of fresh local produce, baked goods, local art, gifts, spirits, jewellery, pickled foods, refreshing beverages, and much more to buy along the way.

Slow Food Cycle Tips

Stay Hydrated - Bring lots of water for the trip because it can get incredibly hot. Also, there is little to no shade on the ride, so be prepared to be in the sun most of the day.

Don't Forget a Bicycle Basket - If you're planning on buying anything along the way make sure you have somewhere to put all your goodies, like a basket or a backpack.

Share The Road - While most residents try to stay off the road during the event, the road is still open to cars. This is the only road for many locals to get to town, please try to be courteous to them during the cycle.

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 daily from the Lodge to and from Whistler Blackcomb.
