The Ride

The 17km ride through Yaletown, Chinatown, Gastown, Coal Harbour, Stanley Park and into the West End is expected to attract thousands of participants.

For the safety of those involved there will be strategic road closures and delays to traffic for a few hours during the event between 4:00pm to 7:30pm. All roads that affect residences and businesses will have a plan in place to help minimize all inconveniences.
