chain of events

The South Okanagan is a cyclist's haven, with its beautiful lake and mountain vistas, tons of biking trails for every ability and a steady schedule of biking events. Picture yourself riding through vineyards, alongside bluer than blue lakes, and breathing fresh mountain air.

This year, the the city and two neighbouring communities of Summerland and Naramata host Chain of Events. Now, there are plenty of reasons to get your bike tuned up for non-stop cycling adventures in the south Okanagan this spring.
