Bike for Your Life and Beyond – A Community Conversation

Thursday 6:30 p.m. March 1, First United Church Hall, Salmon Arm
Join in conversation with recreational road cyclists who live here in the Shuswap – North Okanagan, described by Shuswap Tourism as a “pedal paradise”. We enjoy cycling adventures and quiet times rolling along scenic paved back roads on our bikes. Cycling provides us with rich experiences in observing, listening to and smelling nature especially here in this beautiful region we call home. 

Residents of the Shuswap – North Okanagan live in a “pedal paradise”. One of the ways local cyclists have shared their appreciation for local cycle touring has been to invite fellow cyclists from both near and far (since 1998) to participate in a community bike ride. The Salmon Arm Bike for Your Life Century Ride is 100% volunteer driven and requires ongoing replenishment of its volunteer pool in order to survive and thrive! 

At this community conversation we will reflect together on past experiences of the Salmon Arm Bike for Your Life Century Ride and discuss the shape that this event (or another like it) might take in the future.

When? Thursday evening, March 1 at 6:30 p.m.
Where? First United Church Hall (450 Okanagan Ave E, Salmon Arm)

Hosts & Participants: Roger Beardmore, Pat Danforth, Pat Hutchins, Ian Wickett, George Zorn
Community Conversation Facilitator: Erik Bjorgan
