Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour
We are happy to annouce that on July 21, 2018, The Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour will celebrate its 12th year! Tourism Harrison, Prospera Credit Union and the farmers are excited to welcome you to another year exploring the countryside and meeting the local farmers. The Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour is a leisurely self-guided cycle tour around a 30 km flat route visiting farms and meeting farmers.
On-line registration is now over thank you to all of those who pre-registered! If you missed the chance to pre-register, don't sweat it! 9:00 AM registration opens at 6800 Pioneer Avenue!
*Please note we are working on securing the farm stops. All will be confirmed by June. Follow us on Facebook for updated announcements.
This is a great family friendly event that brings you through a farming community with deep roots in agriculture. Stop into the Agassiz Harrison Museum, an old CPR train station and learn the history of the community, or into the UBC Dairy Research centre to learn about their renowned research and education programs. A farm cycle tour would not be complete without a stop to chat with the goats or sit back and enjoy a slice of homemade pie.
A shopping shuttle service has been provided by Tourism Harrison. They collect your purchases from the farms and bring them back to the registration area for you to pick up.
Spend the weekend! Book soon as accommodations are filling up!
Great accommodations are also to be found in Harrison Hot Springs, from the Harrison Hot Springs Resort, to nearby Provincial and private campgrounds, to cozy bed-and-breakfasts. Find more info here.
