This year marks the 5th
Saanich Cycling Festival, and also a change of format. In past years the event
has been focused on the Shelbourne corridor with the festival site at UVic.
This year the festival theme is Explore Saanich, using the existing network of
off road trails and designated bike routes.
On Sunday, April 17th you’re invited to ride to the new festival site at the Saanich City Hall,
conveniently beside the Lochside Trail just north of the Switch Bridge over Hwy
1. At the festival site there will be bike related displays and activities,
food and music from 11am to 3pm. In addition to the festival site at city hall there
will be festival stations along the Goose and Lochside trails where you can get
bike trail and route information, refreshments, and pick up your Cycle Fest
passport for a chance to win prizes.
For more information www.saanichcyclingfestival.ca.
If you’re a keen cyclist and would
like to help at festival stations on the Goose or Lochside trails please
contact Harry Lewis.
Hope to see lots of happy bikers at
the Family Cycling Festival.
