Each year, it seems, the world of cycling in Vancouver gets more fun and interesting. What with DVBIA support, Mobi bike-sharing, Bike to Work Week and the 2016 Vancouver Cargo Bike Championship event (organized by Modacity).

The 2016 event will be held again in partnership with HUB’s BtWW wrap-up BBQ at Creekside Park. In 2015, 37 people competed (under pretty loose rules), carrying a load of cargo around a closed course — riding against the clock.

Look for it on Friday, June 3 from 4-7 pm.

Personally, I like these kind of events. I get to hang around and take pix (duh), but I’m with a cheerful, happy, energetic group and, dad-gummit, we just have fun.
