The race track and festival grounds stretch from BC Place to the Concord Community Park, which is located by Science World.
In a statement, Cycling BC CEO Erin Waugh said that the race is usually an hour, consisting of 40 to 50 laps depending on cyclist speed.
“It’s fast, technical and exciting. The first person across the finish line without being lapped wins.”
Concord Pacific President and CEO Terry Hui calls it the biggest bike festival in the region.
“We need events like this to bring back the street scene in Vancouver to where it was before 2020, so Concord Pacific decided it must carry on and deliver this event for our local families and cycling enthusiasts.”
Free Family Bike Festival will feature live music with DJ Michael Tedham, e-bike demos, bike safety checks and tune-ups, and Kids iRide Obstacle Course. Attendees can also see canoe-building demonstrations, explore the sustainability presentations at Science World, and discover the electric race cars on display.
