Dan-D Bike Ride
Dan-D Foods headquarters recently held its very first company bike ride.
On Saturday, July 28th Dan-D employees and their families, Dan-D business partners and friends came out for a bike ride along the sea wall in Stanley Park. The gang took off at 10:30am making one trip around the seawall in about an hour. Some of the staff was quite experienced in bike riding, for others it was their first ride in Stanley Park. People enjoyed the challenge, as well as the breathtaking views the biking trail had to offer.
True biking fans went for a 2nd and even 3rd run around sea wall, while others enjoyed badminton, volleyball and Frisbee.
A true reward was a delicious BBQ feast that was waiting for us when we got back from the ride. Our very own chefs, chef Evelyn & Teresa with the gracious help from a Dan-D employee’s spouse – May, once again spoiled us with a variety of dishes. Their menu included grilled lemon grass pork, beef steaks seasoned with Dan-D-Pak Montreal steak seasoning; chicken wings with a hint of Dan-D-Pak special blend curry, grilled salmon, salads, desserts and more.
Raffle draws during the event and were great success, people walked away with movie tickets, gas cards and Dan-D-Pak snacks.
Many of our employees were eagerly awaiting this event to finally get to use the bikes they received as a Christmas gift from our President & CEO Dan On this past year.
Dan generously gave away 45, Asama, 19’ and 17’ mountain bicycles during our Christmas yearend dinner. The bikes feature hydro formed square tube frame with the Quad hydraulic disc brake, double walled rims and sealed cartridge bottom bracket that will withstand all the mud and dirt that can be thrown at it. As solid and reliable as these Asama bikes are, they are also easy to operate and quite compact and can even be folded to fit your car trunk.
The end of the event was a great success! We would like to thank our customers, business partners, families & friends for helping us make our bike ride & family picnic a great success and we look forward to the hosting other events in the near future.
