Rolling down the River: Bike Tour for Whole Health

The Battle River Watershed Alliance is planning a Bike Trip across the Battle River Watershed!

WHEN: Sunday June 17th - Thursday June 21st, 2012

WHERE: Starting at the headwaters of Battle Lake, we will travel east to North Battleford where the Battle River meets the North Saskatchewan River. Stops along the way will include; Pigeon Lake, Ponoka, Camrose, Hardisty, Wainwright, Egerton, and somewhere in Saskatchewan! 

WHY: There is a direct link between the health of our environment and the health of our bodies. Here at BRWA we are interested in ensuring both. In the spirit of this we are planning a bike tour to promote outdoor physical activity as a way to increase our physical health and our connection to our natural surroundings. Isn’t it true that we will only protect what we love?

HOW: The 5 day tour will include educational visits to communities and schools, scenic views, media attention and of course a lot of health promoting biking! You can be involved in this unforgettable experience as a member of the “Streamers” for part of, or the whole journey, you can come to one of the events, or donate as a supporter!
