NCES’ Revel-Pedal to cap off Bike to Work Week

The NCES is hosting Revel-Peda an event on Saturday, an event that celebrates sustainable transportation in Revelstoke.



Record 53 teams signed up for 4th annual Revelstoke Bike to Work Week

The North Columbia Environmental Society is hosting an event on Saturday that celebrates sustainable transportation in Revelstoke.

Revel-Pedal is a “celebration of self-propelled folk,” including cyclists, skateboarders, roller blades/skates and other non-motorized transportation people might us.

The event will begin with a scavenger hunt starting from Grizzly Plaza at 1:30 p.m. There will be two courses, said organizer Hailey Ross, one short one and one longer.

The scavenger hunt will end at the Village Idiot, where various local groups will have displays set up. Ross said to expect presentations from the skateboarding association, cycling association, roller derby and Bike to Work Week.

The City of Revelstoke will also have displays set up showcasing the city’s active transportation plan and the proposed bike routes.

There will also be several short films shown. “The idea is to gather, have a good time but also to have people there to get some public input on the city’s active transportation plan,” Ross said.

There is also talk of a critical mass ride starting from the Village Idiot following the day’s events.

The event will cap off Bike to Work Week, which runs until Sunday, June 3. This year, 53 teams are signed up, the most ever in the four years the event has taken place in Revelstoke.
