With a nod of respect to Vancouver’s cycle commuters, racers, bmx’ers and dirt-jumpers, the folks behind Cycle Chic Social would like to call attention to the lesser known category of cyclists: the unhurried, fashionable set.

Copenhagen is known for its casual urban bikers who get around without 21 speeds or spandex. Vancouver too has a growing category of well-dressed “Slow Bicycle Movement” enthusiasts.

Meet and mingle with other design-savvy cyclists at Cycle Chic Social June 29, at 8pm, in the old Boneta Space. The event boasts a live fashion installation and bike demos by Fashionilla, Vancouver swimwear label Cuchè Bikinis, and Opus Bikes, among other local clothing and bike shops. Add nibbles by dessert ace Earnest Ice Cream, and the $12 tickets seem quite reasonable.

Find out more about the Cycle Chic Social program after the jump. Continue reading:

Velopalooza, Vancouver’s wacky pedal festival, is back June 15- July 2. If Bike to Work Week is the meat and potatoes of cycling events, Velopalooza is the ice cream sundae.

Tricked out night bike raves. Bicycle water gun wars. Bike polo. Vancouver Farmers’ Market rides. A Vintage Bike Swap.

Inspired by Portland’s Pedalpalooza, Velopalooza launched in 2010 bringing community-driven, creative bike fun to Vancouverites who commute on the city’s 400,000 kilometres (248,000 miles) of bike routes.

With over 127 Velopalooza events taking place over two weeks, it can be tricky choosing what to attend. Here’s a shortlist of Velopalooza 2012 favourites to help you narrow it down. Continue reading:
