Salmon Arm Bike for Your Life Century Ride Returns!

Salmon Arm Bike for Your Life Century Ride - Register or Volunteer - Saturday, September 15 You are invited to join in the fun of a community bike ride on the scenic back roads of the Shuswap – North Okanagan on Saturday, September 15 starting at 9:00 a.m. from Blackburn Park in Salmon Arm. 


Event organizers have again included the popular “knock your socks off” scenic and challenging 100K Century Ride to the classic Bike for Your Life 10K, 35K and 75K routes. 

The Bike For Your Life Tour started in 1998 with the hopes of promoting a healthy lifestyle, family solidarity, and community involvement through a fun cycling event in which all ages and abilities could participate. 

The four bike routes are designed to be safe and fun. Whether you have never ridden a bike before, or you are an endurance cyclist, join in. Everyone is welcome!

This is not a racing event. The emphasis is on participation, rather than time, to make it fun for an individual or family. Enjoy the company of fellow cyclists. Ride with your friends and challenge yourself to ride a route distance you might not consider doing on your own. 

The Registration Fee ($25 for Adults, $50 for Families, $15 for children 18 and under) includes Aid Station refreshments, a BBQ lunch of De Mille’s and Pedro Gonzales’ roast corn, a BBQ hamburger with all the fixings and a beverage supplied by Askew’s Foods and organic veggies supplied by Wild Flight Farm. You will have a chance to win some great draw prizes including a Specialized Road Bike supplied by Chris Emel at Ridetech Enterprises, Salmon Arm at the post-ride Bikers’ Celebration. 

Event proceeds will be given to Salmon Arm’s Second Harvest Food Bank. 

Volunteers Needed: Pat Danforth, the Host Committee Volunteers Coordinator, would like to invite anyone not registered for the Ride on Sept. 15 to consider helping host the Ride. There are a number of different hosting jobs. Call Pat at: 250-832-2172.
