Every year, the Fernie Heritage Library kicks off its summer programs with the Ride with Librarians.
The event, which takes place on Thursday, May 31 from 4-5.30 p.m., is a leisurely bike ride for all ages on a route that can be joined at any time.
This year, there will be a number of “Wave and Whistle” stops along the way marked by green balloons, where those who aren’t able join the ride, can wave and whistle in support of the Fernie Book Bike, local librarians and their supporters going by.
Wave and whistle stops will be located at GearHub, The Arts Station, the track at Prentice Park, Maiden Lake and more.
This year, librarians and patrons will be biking from the library garden and will end at The Bridge Bistro, where all are invited to stay for beverages or supper.
The Ride with Librarians is also a part of “Go By Bike BC” to support bike commuting and a biking community.
