The City of Vancouver in partnership with the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition, will be leading a free guided tour on bike downtown for you to see some of Vancouver’s diverse and amazing range of public art murals. This event is one of many activities to celebrate Vancouver’s 125th anniversary since the beginning of this summer.
The ride will wind through downtown, Chinatown and Strathcona areas on several, signed bike routes. Cyclists must have their bike, helmet, water and dress appropriately for the weather. The ride will be approximately 2 hours long but I promise that you will be impressed by the City’s mural art collection.
It’s a great time to bring along friends from the suburbs and other visitors.
There is a choice of rides on either Saturday Oct. 1 or Sunday Oct. 2, 2011. More details here. Link also gives map of the route.
You must register at the web site in advance. The bike ride leaders (and sweepers, those who are at the back of the pack to round up stragglers) need to plan for you.
Be inspired by the colour of art, fall and cycling in Vancouver!
Here are more photos of different outdoor public art in City of Vancouver and some in the suburbs. For art work located in City of Vancouver, they are accessible by bike. Note: These art works include only those that have a bike theme and they are all different.
