Slow Food Cycle Tour 2013 - Agassiz

 

 

 

 

This summer, join us in the Fraser Valley for two family-friendly Slow Food Cycle Tours. Agassiz’s 7th annual Cycle Tour Agassiz will be held on Saturday, July 27th and Chilliwack’s 5th Cycle Tour will be held on Sunday July 30th.  It’s going to be a wonderfully s-l-o-w weekend!

Online Registration is now open!  Our cycle tours are increasingly popular so we encourage you to pre-register.  Participation will be limited to 1000 cyclists per tour to ensure the farmers are not overwhelmed and you and your friends and family have a quality experience.

The leisurely self-guided Slow Food Cycle Tours provide an educational and culinary experience exploring many farms; some that are open to the public for this day only!  The tours give a rare chance to meet the farmers and learn about agriculture in the spectacular Fraser Valley.

Support the Slow Food movement and our local Fraser Valley farmers.  Agassiz and Chilliwack will feature farms that are unique to their areas, so be sure to sign up for both cycle tours and spend the weekend at one of the comfortable Valley accommodations.  Each Cycle Tour is around 23km (give or take) and relatively flat.  And best of all, kids and youth 18 and under cycle for free.  There will be some free samples along the way and others will charge for food.  Be prepared to enjoy both!
