Singer/songwriters Julia Spitale and Shera Kelly are about to embark on The Wheely Slow Cooking Tour. From June 10th to June 25th they will be performing, cycling and cooking across Western Canada.
Julie will be using her skills as a personal cook to make meals for their hosts using whatever is in their kitchens. Shera will be leading bike rides in some of the cities. They will also be visiting local organic farms as they travel.
The Big Backyard kickoff show will take place tonight in Vancouver. The concert will be at 195 West 12th Avenue from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. There will be music, treats and bicycles. The yard gate will open at 8:30 p.m. and tickets are $10. The first 15 people to arrive by bike will get a free piece of cake.
Julia and Shera will also be leading a Velopalooza bike ride from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. before the The Big Backyard show. The riders will meet at Granville Island then ride along the seawall and past kits beach. More details on the ride are available here: velopalooza.ca/#10-423
