The Cycling for Diversity team recently completed its 200-km journey from Mission to Victoria, organized by Mission’s Ken Herar, to showcase the need for harmonious cultural diversity in the area.

The May 18 kick-off event at Griner Park, saw the five riders meet with Mayor James Atebe where a tree was planted and he read out a proclamation declaring it World Day for Cultural Diversity. In all, the group made 24 stops over four days. Sponsorship from Wentings Cycle, Envision Financial and the Mission AM Rotary Club made the event possible.
