This year, paddling will follow pedalling.
Downtown Salmon Arm, in collaboration with Shuswap Rowing and Paddling, will be presenting Shuswap Paddle Month in June.
Paddling Month will come on the heels of the established Shuswap Bike Month & Family Fun Ride in May. Downtown Salmon Arm’s Lindsay Wong and Roger Parenteau presented the plans to the March 9 meeting of council.
Mayor Nancy Cooper expressed her approval, stating Paddle Month is a great addition which, along with Bike Month, promotes a healthy community.
Parenteau noted there is talk of a mayor’s trike race during Bike Month.
Other events planned include a Trans Rockies Single Track Bike Race in July, an AppleFest in September and SalmonFest in October.
