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.
