Sun FM is proud to support the 2012 MS Bike-A-Thon: Okanagan Grape Escape, scheduled for Saturday September 8th - Sunday September 9th!
This year as you sip, savour and cycle to end MS you are invited to feel like you have headed back in time as we theme our weekend around the wild west, cowboys and riding off into the sunset. You will ride through some of the Okanagan’s most scenic vistas on trails, roads and byways as you visit a variety of wineries, farms and other venues.
Each day will start at the Kelowna RONA location and you will return to this location at the end of the day. On Sunday you will be greeted to a great BBQ put on for you by the staff of RONA.
On Saturday, you will spend the first day riding to the wineries on the Upper Bench and in the Mission, enjoy fantastic lake views, fields of ripening grapes, and luscious apple orchards. You will be treated to a lovely lunch at a very picturesque location and provide hosts at each venue you visit along the way who will bring your purchases back to RONA for you to pick up at the end of the day! Your evening will end at Drifters Restaurant and Lounge which features authentic western décor and a beautiful view of one of our many golf courses.
On Sunday, after an amazing breakfast at RONA you will saddle up and ride west over Okanagan Lake to visit more of our world famous wineries. Taking roads and paths through some of our most stunning farm lands and vineyards. Don’t forget your camera to capture your view of the lake as you sip savour and cycle to end MS!
