Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour

 

After careful consideration, it is with great sadness that we have decided to cancel the 2022 Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour. Given the capacity restrictions that are still in place at many of our locations we see no way to successfully hold the event and accordingly we have decided it’s best to postpone until next year. We thank you for your patience and ask that you stay tuned for updates as we look for host a series of events in partnership with our local farmers.

If you are looking to still come out and enjoy our beautiful countryside we recommend cycling the route by E-Bike! E-Bike Rentals are now available through Harrison Eco Tours.

The Agassiz Farms Cycle Tour is a leisurely self-guided cycle tour around a 30 km flat route visiting farms and meeting farmers.

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 and BC Sportsfishing Group.  They collect your purchases from the farms and bring them back to the registration area for you to pick up. Please note all purchases must be picked up at registration by 5:00 pm

 

Book your accommodations soon as they will fill up with all the activities happening the same weekend.  

Great accommodations can also 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. In Agassiz there are some lovely B & B's , and cozy cabins. No hotel or motels.
