Mayors lead Links celebrations

The Parksville Qualicum Beach Links was inaugurated in 2000

  • Apr. 18, 2013 7:00 p.m.

The route is now marked for people to move between Parksville and Qualicum Beach without having to use the highway, and a celebration will take place Saturday.

The Parksville Qualicum Beach Links was inaugurated in 2000 and provides cyclists, runners, walkers and rollers trails and low-traffic road routes to travel between these town centres.

The mayors of Qualicum Beach and Parksville will kick off the celebrations Saturday by leading a group of cyclists on a ride that finishes at Oceanside Place. The Qualicum Beach ride will start at 2 p.m. at the Dollymount Trail at Berwick (behind the QB Legion) and runs about 9 km. The Parksville ride departs from City Hall on Jensen Avenue at 2:30 p.m. and covers about 4 km. At Oceanside Place, in the parking lot behind the Pond, there will be food and drinks, singing by Jessica Kelly, information tables and prizes.

This event is co-hosted by the Oceanside Cycling Coalition. For more information, contact RDN Parks at 250-248-3252, 1-888-828-2069, www.rdn.bc.ca; or visit www.oceansidecyclingcoalition.ca.              — NEWS Staff
