This coming Saturday, April 28, we’re planning (depending on the weather) to go on our first Discovery Bike Ride for the season, and we hope to gather a crowd to join us on this ride! We’ll be heading out to the Year of the Bike Party in Vancouver, a big celebration for the VACC, since we’ll be revealing our new look and name!
We’ll be meeting at Hume Park (at Braid Station) at noon. The ride will follow the Central Valley Greenway to Science World. Along the way we’ll be joining up with other groups riding from all over Metro Vancouver to the party. The final meet-up will be at 2 pm at Science World and from there we’ll ride en masse to the party at the Woodwards building. This is going to be an awesome ride!! It will be about 20 km one way. On the way to the party, Rick Halas and/or Peter Jongbloed will be leading the ride.
The party should be a lot of fun, with lots of family activities, music, dancing and, of course, food! Take a look at the VACC website for the details. Would be nice if you can dress up for the occasion. There are prizes to be won!
It’ll be up to participants if they want to go back on their own, or hook up with some others in the group to go together. You can either ride your bike back to Braid Station, or take the Skytrain back (it’s a short, easy and pleasant ride from the Woodwards building along the Carall Street Greenway and the separated paths along False Creek to Main Skytrain Station).
We would like to get an idea how many people would be interested in joining us on this ride, so please let me know @ firstname.lastname@example.org. If you send me an e-mail, I can also let you know if the ride has been canceled due to the weather.
