The 5th Annual Stanley Park Bike Festival Presents:
The first ever Park 2 Park Ride!
Vancouver, BC, June 12, 2007 â€“ On Saturday, June 16, the Stanley Park Bike Festival will be having its first annual Park 2 Park Ride, a 25 km all-ages bike ride from Second Beach to Spanish Banks.
The Park 2 Park Ride is part of a larger-scale goal to reduce our environmental impact by encouraging people to discover and celebrate cycling as a daily mode of transportation. Registration begins at 8:30am and the ride will depart Ceperley Park near Second Beach rain or shine at 10 a.m., where they will begin riding along Vancouverâ€™s finest shoreline to Spanish Banks and back.
Riders will also have the opportunity to meet the Cops for Cancer, Vancouver Cycling Coalition members, the MuddBunnies, Antipodes Expedition leader, Gwendal Castellan, who rode his bike from Ushuaia located at the most southern tip of South America to Inuvik, the most northern town reachable by road in Canada and members of the 2007-2008 Pole to Pole Expedition Team who will undertake a human-powered journey from the South Pole to the North Pole.
Interested participants can register for the Park 2 Park Ride online by credit card or onsite between 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. on the day of the ride by cash. Cost is $20.00. Children 13 years old and under can register free if accompanied by an adult.
Beginning at noon, riders will gather back at Ceperley Park where the festival will kick off with Vancouver’s own B:C:Clettes, an all-lady, bike-inspired, street performance collective. This yearâ€™s event will also include highlights from local talents, such as Kazband, DJ K, Karine Zamor, Zenobia Salik and the Broken Falls Community Hall Band. Additional events include the annual Kids Race, Bike Rodeo, Pedal Zoo and a friendly commuter challenge, where friends and families can take part in a fun cycling competition.
The Stanley Park Bike Festival is the premier bike month event. It seeks to celebrate cycling by promoting cycling as a fun and practical mode of transportation for everyone and as great way to reduce our environmental footprint.
