Velo-City at MOV: Vancouver’s bike world
From the muffins, coffee and bike displays at BEST’s Commuter Challenge launch to the new Velo-City exhibition at the Museum of Vancouver, it was a busy day Wednesday for the city’s burgeoning cycling community.
The MOV Velo-City exhibit is crammed with bikes and with tributes to those who’ve built cycling into the city’s DNA.
Two surprises: the number of hand-builders in our city and the astonishing economic and artistic energy generated by velo-love. Starting July 4, cycling tours of “Vancouverism,” an “only-in-Vancouver” museum experience if there ever was one.
