what we did today ....

Wow! What a day!

Despite getting up late I think we've packed the works into this Sunday! We drove up to Pemberton, just north of Whistler (yes, Coldplay were here as part of the new festival circuit last month) for slow food cycle sunday and had a great day cycling thru the valley.

We got to the 13km mark and had lunch at
Pemberton Meadow Natural Beef (and cooled off under the irrigation sprinkler) before turning round to visit other farms en route. The farming and food community of Pemberton opens house for this Sunday, providing visitors, who visit each establishment by bicycle along the valley, with samples of their wares. We had delicious natural burgers for lunch then homemade lemonade and a frozen yogurt popsicle at a roadside stand followed by icecream at Helmer's organic farm (and checked out the ducklings). This was topped off with an iced coffe (and splash in the paddling pool) at the Pemberton Valley Coffee Company stand.

We covered approximately 26km along the valley road and cycled with an amazing number of families out for the day. I have never seen so many children on bikes, in trailers, on trailer bikes, on seats, on training wheels and on the road ever! The wee guy was in great company (and thanks to Pemberton Area search and rescue for waving to him from their ATV! made his day!)
