If you love the outdoors and cycling, and would like to help those in need, Our Daily Bread invites you to join the 11th annual Peddle Along a Rail Trail (P.A.R.T. 11) on Saturday, August 13th. This year there is a new route.
The new route
This bike ride is truly a unique and wonderful experience. It travels along the old C.P. Rail Line from the Paulson Detour Road, past Christina Lake and on to Grand Forks. It is an incredibly scenic 5 hour ride with a tunnel, trestles, historical interests and spectacular views with option to swim in the river. This exciting ride is hosted by Kootenay Christian Fellowship in support of Our Daily Bread. It is our summer signature fund raising event to keep lunches on the table at Our Daily Bread.
Our Daily Bread is Nelson’s only hot lunch program operating 5 days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each day we offer breakfast and a hot nutritious meal to more than 80 members of our community. Many of our guests are homeless, at risk of homelessness, seniors, mentally ill or are among the working poor. The meal we provide is often the only meal they will eat for the day. If you can’t go on the ride, then please consider supporting it with a donation. We are in need of funding to carry us through to Christmas. You can donate on line or at Our Daily Bread.
We provide transportation for you and your bicycle and will pick you up at one of two locations:
• Kootenay Christian Fellowship parking lot, 520 Falls Street in Nelson at 7 am
• Castlegar Christian Fellowship,1801 Connors Road in Castlegar at 8:10 am
Please bring your own water bottle, snacks, and lunch for the day. Mountain bikes and helmets are mandatory. We have a support vehicle that travels with us in the event that anyone needs assistance. At the end of the ride, we will provide a hot meal as part of your registration cost.
The registration fee is $75. If you prefer, you can raise pledges for Our Daily Bread. If you raise $125 or more in financial support, your registration fee will be waived. All donations are tax receiptable.
