This Week is Super Week

Judy B

When it comes to bike racing in Vancouver, this is the big week. the Tour de White Rock wrapped up this weekend, and the Tour de Delta is next weekend (yours truly will be participating by driving a support car), and midweek, there’s the Giro di Burnaby on Thursday.

But the crown jewel in this series of pro bike races is the Wednesday night event, the Tour de Gastown, right in the heart of the city.

All three of these events will feature action-packed racing from the best cyclists on this continent (did you know that back before he was famous, Lance Armstrong won the Gastown race?), but the two mid-week criterium races (that means a race on a short road circuit, usually just a couple blocks long) are the crowd-pleasers. They start in the early evening, and go on until dusk. Get there early to grab a good vantage point for all the action.

    That’s awesome. Thanks for posting this. I live right near where the Giro Di Burnaby is happening this Thursday. I’ll be there for sure. It looks exciting.
