Pedal, paddle, and party at FraserFEST on August 28

Aug 23 2016, 12:06 am

FraserFEST is back again, bringing with it the opportunity to pedal, paddle, and party – all in the effort of educating people about the Fraser River and showing them how to lower their impact on salmon and water.

Participants of the festival will learn about the Fraser River’s history, culture, and other issues that threaten its health, along with solutions for change.

Check out these cool activities you can experience at this year’s FraserFEST and make sure you don’t miss out.

Paddle a voyageur canoe 



Strap on your life jacket and paddle with your team in a 34′ Voyageur canoe as part of this year’s FraserFEST. You’ll get to experience the Fraser from off-the-beaten track with a group of friends or co-workers. Sponsor a canoe and experience a trip from Fort Langley to Coquitlam (August 27) or Vancouver to North Shore Loop (August 28).

Go for a cycling adventure



Organized by HUB, this group ride is open to cyclists of all ages. Just bring your own bike and be prepared to cycle 40 kms in three to four hours with breaks. You’ll get to pedal along the Fraser River or the Burrard Inlet as part of a group at the price of only $10 per adult or $20 per family. Route options include:
