Agassiz Slow Food Cycle 2011


A Slow Food Cycle Event
The date is set for 2011. See you on Saturday, July 23. 

We plan to start at the Fall Fair Grounds in Agassiz (FITNESS ACTIVITY CENTRE) after breakfast prepared by Kilby Farms and perked up with a Back Porch Coffee, leisurely cycle a self-guided tour around a 25 km flat route visiting farms and meeting farmers.  Stops feature special events, guided tours, samples, taste plates to purchase and a wide variety of fresh and food products available to purchase and take home.  The ‘shopping shuttle service’ is available as panniers only hold so much. 

Spend the weekend.

Enjoy great accommodations and romantic getaways in the area, from the Harrison Hotsprings Resort, to nearby Provincial and private campgrounds, to cozy bed-and-breakfasts (click on ‘Where to Stay’ on the left of this page). The following day, join us on the Chilliwack Cycle Tour where you experience new farms,  food offerings and spectacular scenery.
