Big Bike is back

The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s 26th annual Big Bike Ride will begin Wednesday. 

The three-day event supports heart disease and stroke research.

From May 8 until May 10, participants will be riding the Big Bike around downtown Kelowna starting and ending at the Rotary Centre for the Arts Common on Cawston Avenue.

While participants follow the rules of the road and do not interfere with vehicle traffic, motorists are still advised to watch for the Big Bike along route on the following streets: Clement Avenue, Ellis Street, Bernard Avenue, and Water Street.

There will be limited parking on the south side Cawston Avenue in front of the Art Gallery to accommodate loading and unloading of participants for the duration of the event.
