This day-long event features eight self-guided routes through various neighbourhoods where you can do the best cherry blossom viewing. If you prefer a guided ride, stop by Devonian Harbour Park (at Denman and Georgia) at 11:00am for a free bike tour. At the end of your route (whether you were on your own or along with the tour) there will be a celebration in MacLean Park (710 Keefer St at Heatley Ave in Strathcona) where you can get your bike washed, enjoy more blossoms, and have a picnic.

All routes are available in this PDF download or individually from the Velopalooza site.

Velopalooza is a volunteer-directed, community-based non-profit society focused on promoting cycling culture, events, and fun. The Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival has a mission to sustain and renew Vancouver’s cherry tree heritage while educating and engaging community in celebration of the cherry blossom.
