What better way to enjoy the changing of the seasons than going for a ride along the historic Slocan Valley Rail Trail?
On Sunday, Oct. 16 beginning at noon, the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society (SVHTS) would like to invite cyclists of all ages to come join them on an enjoyable ride along a portion of the 52 km long former CP Rail Trail.
Fall brings out that late flash of colour which can turn an enjoyable ride into an explosion of hues and textures.
The ride this year will begin and end at the new southern-most terminus of the Rail Trail on Highway 3A in South Slocan opposite the Dam Inn.
From there cyclists ride north for approximately eight km to below the area know as Kosiancic’s Hill, where they’ll find volunteers of the SVHTS waiting with refreshments. Catch up on the latest Rail Trail news, meet old friends and discover new ones – it’s sure to be a magical day.
They will also bring the electric-assist bikes along for those who may wish to experience them.
Dress for the weather, bring a water bottle and donations for the SVHTS will always be gratefully accepted.
For more information phone 355-2397 or 226-0008.
