BICYCLING -- As I compile bicycling events for The Spokesman-Review's 2013 Cycling Events Calendar, I came across this troubling message from Lorne Westnedge, organizer for the venerable Pedal Around a Glacier, Eh! bicycle tour, sponsored by the First Baptist Church of Nelson, British Columbia.
We are hoping to host another Pedal Around a Glacier, Eh! (P.A.G.E.) ride on June 1 & 2, 2013. However, we need a minimum number of riders to sign up by April 1st in order for us to continue. The minimum number is 20, and we are not there yet.
PAGE starts in Nelson for a two-day,140-mile ride along Kokanee and Slocan Lakes and twice across the spine of the Selkirk Mountains to loop around Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park. Overnight in New Denver along Slocan Lake. Cost: $95.
