Mountain Equipment Co-op is proud to present the 4th annual MEC Bikefest. This year’s festivities will be taking place on Saturday, June 23 at the Athlete’s Village Plaza on False Creek from 10:00am – 3:00pm.
MEC Bikefest is an urban celebration of bikes and cycling culture in the heart of Vancouver. A family-friendly festival geared towards everyone from first-time riders to avid enthusiasts. Admission to MEC Bikefest is free of charge with optional paid clinics available.
The goal with Bikefest has always been to promote the fantastic cycling culture that exists already in Vancouver. Whether it’s someone practicing active and environmentally conscious urban transit, a downhill rider sessioning the North Shore or a novice simply looking to get outdoors more often, they want to celebrate these and all facets of Vancouver’s cycling life.
Last year, over 3000 people attended MEC Bikefest and attendance is expected to grow for this year’s festival. Attendees will have the opportunity to take part in the numerous clinics and activities being offered by local vendors and MEC alike. Events include a stunt show performed by The Flow Riders, bike demos, children’s activities, “how-to” workshops, MEC Bike Swap and MEC Marketplace.
Registration for clinics began on June 7 and costs $5 per person. Clinic participants receive a Camino chocolate bar as well as entry into a draw to win a Bikefest prize pack.
