Pemberton Slow Food Cycle
A gentle bike ride with stunning views of Mt Currie as your backdrop and a sensory smorgasbord to tantalise your taste buds. Does this sound like the perfect way to spend your Sunday? Clear your schedule, escape the Crankworx celebration and take a 30 minute drive north of Whistler to Pemberton this Sunday August 18 for the Pemberton Slow Food Cycle.
The Pemberton Slow Food Cycle is a celebration of food, farmers and the joys of biking. This free to ride event is a pedal-powered trip through the natural buffet that is Pemberton Meadows farmland, to meet local growers and sample produce fresh from the field (note the food will cost you). The World Watch Institute reports that the average food item eaten in North America has traveled 2500-4000 km from farm to table. The distance between good food and your table is as short as a 50km bike ride.
The Slow Food Cycle kicks off in Pemberton village at 8am on Sunday August 18.
