Green Party candidate hosting Creston-Wynndel bike ride

Web Lead

Columbia-Kootenay Green Party Candidate Bill Green invites everybody to join him for a community bike ride on April 28. This easy, family friendly 24-kilometre ride will go from Creston to Wynndel along Lower Wynndel road and back after meeting up with Green.

“I am really excited about this fun community event,” said Green, who is doing a cycling tour of the entire Kootenay-Columbia riding as part of his election campaign.

The Green ride will start at 1:30 p.m. at the Cook Street parking lot in Creston, returning around 4 p.m.

“We want to bring people together in a fun way — wear something green!” said Ann Remnant, of the Nelson-Creston Greens.

At 7 p.m., Green will be available for a meet and greet and to answer questions at Renee’s Main Street Diner. At 7:30 p.m., there will be a free showing of the movie Dirt, a surprising and sometimes comical multi-award winning documentary about the stuff underfoot in which we grow our food.

Narrated by Jaime Lee Curtis, Dirt brings to life the environmental, economic, social and political impact that the soil has. It shares the stories of experts from all over the world who study and are able to harness the beauty and power of a respectful and mutually beneficial relationship with soil.
