Cycling4Diversity Week set for May 20-26

The C4D team will wrap up its annual ride at the Mission Sikh Temple on May 25 at 6:30 p.m.

May 20-26 is Cycling4Diversity (C4D) Week in B.C. and in Mission.

During that week, the C4D team will wrap up its annual ride at the Mission Sikh Temple on May 25 at 6:30 p.m.

Throughout the week the team will be visiting schools to speak with students on issues of diversity and inclusion.

It’s the team’s seventh annual ride and they have visited close to 150 schools throughout the province.

“Everyone in the community is invited to learn a little about Sikhism along with a meal and fellowship on May 25,” said Ken Herar, C4D founder.

“The purpose is to break any barriers or questions that may exist, creating stronger communities. I’ve had many approach me wanting to attend the local temple, which was opened in 1989. I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to showcase just that and this is what I am passionate about – bringing people together.”

Herar also said that tours of the temple will be available for guests as will turban tying.

“It will be a fun and educational evening for all. Families are welcome to attend, including children.”

If you are interested in attending, you can contact Herar at kenherar@gmail.com.
