Slow Food Cycle Sunday

slow food, pemberton event

A Celebration of Food, Farmers and the Joys of Biking!

Slow Food Cycle Sunday presented by Pemberton Valley Supermarket is an opportunity to connect — town folk and city folk, consumers with their food, people with the land. The future of food is local!

Slow Food Cycle Sunday is a 40 kilometer / 25 mile cycle up and down Pemberton Meadows Road. Choose your own pace and do as much or as little of the route as you like.

Visit Pemberton farms and purchase local produce, crafts and much more along the way.

Tourism Pemberton has decided to officially cancel the 2020 Slow Food Cycle Sunday that was meant to take place on August 16. Given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, it would have been very challenging to host a safe event while maintaining physical distancing and adhering to the ‘large gathering’ rules currently in place. We look forwarding to hosting the event again in August 2021.


2020 Slow Food Cycle | Sunday, August 16 – CANCELLED

Road Closed for a Safe Event!

Once again this year, in the interest of participant safety, Pemberton Meadows Road will be closed to vehicle traffic from 10am – 3pm on Sunday, August 16 for the Slow Food Cycle Sunday event. The road will remain open for slow moving farm vehicles.

From 9am-10am and from 3pm onward the road will be shared by vehicle traffic and bike traffic. The speed limit along Pemberton Meadows Road will be reduced to 30 km/hr. Please share the road and respect each other’s goals to ensure a fun and safe day for all.
