Streets closed for Cycle of Hope

The ALS Canada’s Cycle of Hope ride will take place on Sunday, Aug 10.

Approximately 70 participants will be cycling around Kelowna in order to raise funds and awareness for families living with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The ALS Cycle of Hope website says "Our 2014 goal is to raise $50,000 for ALS Canada.  Funds raised will help fund breakthrough research into treatments and ultimately a cure for ALS and will go towards the purchase of a powered wheelchair for ALS Society of British Columbia."

Groves Avenue from Tutt Street to Pandosy Street will be closed from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. to accommodate the event’s start-finish line and celebration zone.

Participants will travel along Lakeshore Drive and throughout South and South-East Kelowna. Motorists are asked to drive cautiously around cyclists on the roads in these areas and to plan their trip accordingly.
