Pedal Penticton

The City is hosting Pedal Penticton a biking event this Saturday September 7th form 9:00 - 1:00pm in Gyro Park to engage citizens about a lake-to-lake cycling route. The need for a safe and convenient cycling route through the city and connecting the Okanagan and Skaha lakes is needed if we want more people to cycle in Penticton. There will be lots of fun activities like bike decorating, games for kids, a Community Group Ride, e-bike test drives, tri-shaw rides, etc.

Stolen Bike Returned to Owner

During the rash of break ins in downtown Penticton two mountain bikes were stolen. One of the bikes had a Garage 529 sticker on it. The police find stolen bikes on a daily basis but do not have a way to track the bikes and get them back to their owners. Garage 529 provides them a way to identify a bike's owner and where it was stolen from so that it can be returned. As a result of this sticker and being registered, one of the above mentioned mountain bikes was returned to its grateful owner.
