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.
