The one-day event in BC’s Pemberton Valley combines the slow food movement with the slow bike movement.
The Slow Food Cycle Sunday is one of BC’s Sea-to-Sky Corridor’s largest cycling events. The valley’s flat, gentle, paved, and grated roads make the destination perfect for the relaxed rider. The Slow Food Cycle, in its eleventh year, celebrates farmers in the community with 4,000 cyclists riding 16 miles (25 kilometers) and back through the gorgeous Pemberton Valley. Riders can take their time, combining the slow food movement with the slow bike movement.

HOW TO GET A BIKE
Pemberton Bike Co. is Pemberton’s only bike service. They have approximately 40 bikes available for rent and they are scooped up early for the event. Bikes can also be rented in Whistler and Vancouver and transported to Pemberton by car.
Pemberton is a playground for outdoor sports – notably fishing, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, and camping. For other styles of recreation, the Pemberton Distillery makes unique craft spirits from the potatoes of the Pemberton Valley.
