Sea to Sky's signature agritourism event, Slow Food Cycle Sunday Pemberton blows the fast-food drive-through away. A pedal-powered trip through the natural buffet that is Pemberton Meadows farmland, to meet local growers and sample produce fresh from the field, Slow Food Cycle is:

  • Good for your carbon credits
  • Flat and scenic and ride-able for all ages and levels of fitness
  • A sensory smorgasboard

The World Watch Institute reports that the average food item eaten in North America has traveled 2500-4000 km from farm to table. The distance between good food and your table is as short as a 50km bike ride.

The future of food is local!
