Beautiful pedal with a cause

If you love the outdoors, cycling, and would like to help those in need, you are invited to join the sixth annual Peddle Along a Rail Trail (PART 6) on Saturday, July 23.

This exciting ride is hosted by Kootenay Christian Fellowship and Castlegar Christian Fellowship in cooperation with the Nelson First Baptist Church. It is an annual event to raise funds for Our Daily Bread.

Our Daily Bread is Nelson’s only hot lunch program operating five days a week from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each day they provide hot, nutritious meals to approximately 50 members of our community. Many of their guests are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or are among the working poor. The meal they provide is often the only meal they will eat for the day.

This bike ride is truly a unique and wonderful experience. It travels along the old CP Rail line from the Paulson Detour Road to the Celgar mill parking lot. It is an incredibly scenic four-to-five hour ride with trestles, tunnels, and spectacular views from high above the Arrow Lake.

They provide transportation for you and your bicycle and will pick you up at one of two locations:

• 811 Stanley Street (Central School Parking Lot) in Nelson at 7:15 a.m.

• 1801 Connors Road (Castlegar Christian Fellowship) in Castlegar at 8:15 a.m.

Bring your own water bottle, snacks, and lunch for the day. You will also want a flashlight as there is a long, dark tunnel on route. They have a support vehicle that travels with us in the event that anyone needs assistance. Helmets are mandatory.

At the end of the ride, they will provide a hot meal as part of your registration cost.

The registration fee is $60. If you prefer, you can raise pledges for Our Daily Bread. If you raise $125 or more in pledges, your registration fee will be waived.

If you would like more information about the PART 6 or to register, please contact Danielle at 250-352-7700 or Registrations can also be found online at

Space is limited so please register as soon as possible. The deadline for registration is July 20.

For more information on Our Daily Bread, call 250-352-7700, email, visit us online at, or stop in for lunch and see Our Daily Bread’s success.
