Join Bike Day in Canada on May 25th

We are excited to be the first trail association to support this appeal to raise awareness of cycling as a healthy and environment friendly way to commute and recreate.

Established in 2012, Canada Bikes is a federal NPO consisting of representatives from cycling organizations across Canada as well as active transportation and sustainable mobility professionals. Their goal: To get more Canadians cycling, be it for transportation, recreation or touring, to get more urban and rural bicycle infrastructure built that enables and supports this, and to facilitate the dialogue in Canada on cycling, using science- and evidence-based national and international research, benchmarking, best practices and policies.

To show your support for this cause we would like to invite you to join us for a fun group ride on May 25th, 2015 together with some DNV members, NSMBA directors, athletes and really everyone who wants to join. Bring your friends, family, kids - All skills and ages are welcome.

Two different routes will be available:

2.5km: An easy short lap from the North Vancouver District Municipal Hall to ride some trails in Princess Park and back.

10km: We will take the intermediate riders to do a lap of Expresso and back. The maximum duration for this ride will be 1.5 hours.

Time to get into your cycling gear, pump up your tires, grease your chain and show your support of the sport we all love so much. See you there.

May 25th, 2015 ready to roll at 5:30pm

DNV City Hall, 355 West Queens Road, North Vancouver
