A bike the size of a school bus which can seat 29 riders will be returning to 100 Mile House and Williams Lake to help raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Special events coordinator with the Kamloops-Cariboo Heart and Stroke Foundation, Lisa Verity says the Big Bike will be in both communities on June 9.
“There is one big huge community ride that goes at 12 noon in 100 Mile. After we wrap that up, we head up to Williams Lake. This year it is in a brand new location. It is being hosted by Save-On-Foods.”
Verity says that the first ride that will kick off the day in Williams Lake will be the Save-On-Foods Team combined with Curves and that teams will be riding up until 7 pm.
Last year’s Big Bike in the Cariboo had raised over $22,000 for heart and stroke research as well as life-saving automated external defibrillators in communities across Canada.
