Silver Star Rotary is helping to fundraise for the Okanagan Rail Trail.

The club is hosting the fourth annual Rotary Ride Sunday, July 23, starting at 7 a.m. at Kin Beach.

There will be three route options available: a 66-km jaunt that goes to Armstrong and back on secondary roads; a 98-km option that goes to Armstrong and out Salmon River Road to Glenemma and back to Vernon; and the longest route, 126-km, that goes past Glenemma to Yankee Flats and back.

“These routes provide wonderful and scenic riding terrain,” said James Kanester with Silver Star Rotary. “A delicious barbecue will be greeting the cyclists on their return to Kin Beach.”

All the proceeds from the Rotary Ride will be going to the Okanagan Rail Trail initiative.

The number of riders will be limited to the first 200 to register at rotaryridebc.ca. This event provides a great opportunity to help build a world-class rail trail.
