FALL COLOURS RIDE RETURNS!
On Sunday,September 29th beginning at 1:00 p.m. why not support the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society’s (SVHTS) at this year’s Fall Colours Ride and Fundraiser? The event once again begins at the South Slocan Trailhead of the Slocan Valley Rail Trail and again the theme is ‘Anything with Wheels’ to highlight the unique 4 km paved section of trail. ‘Wheels’ can be any non-motorized device including bicycles, trikes, roller blades, long boards, skate boards, push scooters, in-line skates, wheel chairs, baby-buggies, cross-training gear and of course walking and running will be okay. The ride will be from South Slocan to Crescent Valley and back, or as far as folks want to go.
The fundraiser once again features support from the Dam Restaurant & Bar in South Slocan, who will be offering a Burger and Bevy special ticket, with a large portion of the funds coming back to support the volunteers who help keep the Slocan Valley Rail Trail an essential component of the community. Tickets will be available at the beginning of the Fall Colours Ride. As well, a special surprise is being organized for kids at the Frog Peak Cafe where we hear sasquatches have recently been sighted!
There will be several fundraising raffle baskets on display at the Ride start, which entrants can buy tickets on (3 for $5). Everything from accommodation to meals to the work of local artisans to a wide range of area based services and goods are among some of the items that are being donated. Get your tickets at the beginning of the ride and buy a whole bunch to give yourself a better chance of winning! If you can’t make the event, you can always get tickets through the Rail Trail website or Facebook page and at the Dam Restaurant. Also at the beginning of the Ride, memberships and ball caps will be available. Of course, donations are always welcome.
After the Ride everyone is invited to the Dam Restaurant to enjoy a burger and bevy where Sunday afternoons sees the acoustic open stage where the skills of local musicians are highlighted.
