Tour de Concord Vancouver – Thank You!

Thousands of people reveled in Vancouver’s biggest free family bike festival and criterium cycling races on Thursday, June 30th at the Tour de Concord at Concord Pacific Place on the north shore of False Creek. It was a fun-filled summer evening featuring professional and amateur bike racing, a family & community ride on the racecourse, the Concord $5,000 Charity Challenge, free family activities, complimentary popcorn and treats for kids, Cycling BC’s HopOn Kids Bike Zone, food trucks, and over $6,000 in draw prizes were awarded to attendees.

The event attracted people of all ages and cycling abilities and was an opportunity for people to learn more about the benefits of cycling for sport, commuting & recreation, get free bike tune-ups, plus experience the thrill of a bike racing up close, as pro cyclists raced laps around the closed 800-metre circuit accented by some of Vancouver’s most iconic landmarks, including BC Place, Rogers Arena, False Creek, and Science World as the backdrop.

The event was hosted by Concord Pacific in celebration of Vancouver’s growing cycling culture. Race registration proceeds of $7,500 were donated by Concord Pacific to support Cycling BC’s athlete development programs for BC’s emerging young cyclists.

Thank you to all the volunteers and sponsors for their support at this community event and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
