About ConnecTour: Reconnecting, Rebuilding and Restoring, Canada’s Communities
The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply rent the social fabric of Canada. Calgary and our surrounding communities are yours to discover, even if not fully open for business. This day trip is about connecting with others that enjoy getting out on bikes, enjoying the company of others, learning some history of the Crowsnest Pass, and visiting The Pass Beer Company, a small batch 10 barrel brewhouse that has approachable beer styles to be enjoyed after a day in the mountains.
The Pass Beer Company is keen to host us and have set up a local musician for our lunchtime visit. We will also hear more about Sampson and Markos McFerrin’s bike trip across Canada this past summer. The day trip includes bike tour guides, coordination of activities, lunch with a beer, live music and fun!
· Pre-registration and signed waiver required
· Bring your own bike
· The first beer is included. The next ones are at your expense.
