A Pretty, Tasty Ride: Slow Food Cycle Sunday

Download Flash Player to view this content.


This weekend, thousands of cyclists will pedal the picturesque roads of the Pemberton Valley. Potato farmer Anna Helmer first organized the Slow Food Cycle Sunday as a way of connecting city folk to farmers and the land. It's grown from 300 riders to an expected 4000 this year. Ten farms, including Ice Cap Organics, will open their gates and serve up local bounty with the help of other local producers and restaurants. The ride is free, and you can pay for food as you go. The menu includes Pemberton gin, ice cream, coffee baked goodies, and of course, potatoes.

The rides are gaining momentum. Since the Pemberton ride began in 2005, Chilliwack Agassiz and Comox have all started Slow Food rides.
