The Okanagan Wine Region is World Class featuring boutique family run vineyards to world class operations.  The region is rich with scenery and character, highlighting the most amazing bike routes throughout the Central Okanagan. The Okanagan Grape Escape bike route is challenging, as the best wines grow on slopes and some of them are quite steep, but the reward you will receive at each location you will visit is wonderful.  

The route you will travel is between 50 to 75 kilometres each day depending on you route choices. The opportunity to visit, taste and purchase at specially selected vineyards makes the Okanagan Grape Escape a very enticing bike ride geared to end MS.    

Everything starts and finishes on both days at RONA. You will be supported throughout the two day ride by Fresh Air Experience, the Okanagan Harley Owners Group, and many volunteers from the MS community. We will take great care of you with meals, snacks, refreshments, throughout the weekend. All we ask is that you register and raise a minimum of $300 to participate. When you raise $1000 you will receive a specially designed cycling jersey. When you raise $2,000 you will receive the matching cycling shorts as our gift to you for your hard work as a volunteer fundraiser.
