John Atkin, civic historian and author, writes:

After having so much fun with Velopalooza this summer, I’ve added a bike tour to my usual Wednesday Night Heritage walks schedule on August 25th. We’re biking the Hastings Townsite from the Burrard Waterfront to the Grandview Highway. It starts at 7:00pm til dusk at 9:00pm and it will be a gentle pace, nothing too strenuous. Details here

As well I’ve been asked by Mountain View to do a bike tour on the 22nd. of the cemetery, here’s the text from their press release:

Join us for a bike tour of Mountain View Cemetery. It’s a chance to wheel through 124 years of history and take in all of the cemetery’s 106 acres.

 $10pp. 15 yrs and under = free!

August 22nd, 10:00am

Meet at Celebration Hall in the cemetery


  1. I did John’s Velopalooza tour and it was awesome – a great evening, wonderfully informative. Highly recommended.
