MS Bike Cowichan Valley Experience Update - August 16, 2017
Further to our message last week regarding air quality concerns and our upcoming MS Bike events, we are pleased to share that there has been significant improvement in air quality in the Duncan area, and our event is proceeding as planned. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we worked through this situation to address important safety concerns.
We wish you all a fantastic ride and thank you for your support.
MS Bike is the largest fundraising cycling series in North America and it’s the experience of a lifetime! Every year since 1989, cyclists of all ages and fitness levels across the country get together to end Canada’s disease: multiple sclerosis. Excitement, challenge, and community; we know you’ll leave with a sense of great accomplishment.
Biking in the beautiful Cowichan Valley is an experience of breathtaking views and sumptuous flavors. Artisanal cheese makers, slow-food chefs and award-winning wineries await.
The ride begins Saturday at the prestigious Brentwood College School. Throughout your ride you can stop and enjoy local wineries, farms, and artisans and sample delicious local fare. Check out the amazing route stops and points of interest:
Upon your return, spend the afternoon at Rider Village where your experience will continue with appetizers, a gourmet dinner and evening musical festivities.
On Sunday, wake up to breakfast and head out with friends, family and coworkers to explore more of the Cowichan Valley. Finish your experience with a BBQ lunch and celebrate your success at the closing ceremony!
Whether you are competing to be the strongest team or fighting for a cause that’s close to home, we’ll be right with you for every challenge, every breakthrough and every triumph. Join the fight to improve the lives of Canadians affected by MS. The dollars you raise are invested in world-leading MS research that will bring us closer than ever to finding a cure for the disease. Together we can end MS!
