The Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Big Bike is coming back to Parksville and Qualicum Beach for fund and awareness raising rides.

The Vancouver Island office of the Heart and Stroke Foundation is looking for teams to take a fun spin on the 30 seat bike on June 3 in Parksville and June 4 in Qualicum Beach. Last year Parksville’s Big Bike event raised over $17,400 and Qualicum Beach raised $14,600.

They encourage people to register today to put your organization in the spotlight and continue the tradition. Call 250-754-5274 or visit bigbike.ca. Check heartandstroke.ca for more.
