This year at Slow Food Cycle, 13 farms and venues will participate creating a 22-kilometre roundtrip, with food experiences on offer including handmade sausages, mini donuts, bannock, shaved ice and popsicles, to fresh French fries, perogies, kombucha, twice baked potatoes, tacos, fish and chips, empanadas, and a variety of baked goods.
The Lions Club will kick things off with a pancake breakfast at the downtown Pemberton Barn from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
The Pemberton Arts Council will feature local artists at Across The Creek Organics. Shy-Anne Gunville will also be leading yoga sessions throughout the day, and the Courageous Mountain Rangers Bluegrass Band will perform to keep everyone moving and grooving.
A new far addition this year is Happy Fox Organics. Joining them onsite will be Frost Bites Shaved Ice, Pemberton Distillery, Dee’s Donuts and upcycled clothes by Deja Vogue. You’ll also be able to purchase copies of Polek Rybczynski’s Valley of Light photo journal.
There will be wood crafts by John Tschopp, (our wonderful birding correspondent here on the Almanac) where you’ll find everything from chairs, boxes, benches and birdnest boxes.
The cost for the event is $5 per person or $20 per family. Participants are encouraged to register at 9 a.m. online. Helmets are mandatory and motorized bikes are not permitted.
Volunteers are still welcome to do a 2 hour session to help things run smoothly.
