Awesome Vancouver Velopalooza Critical Mass!

Yesterday, I participated in this month’s Vancouver Critical Mass, a cycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world and which was originally founded in 1992 in San Francisco. Due to Velopalooza and Velo-city currently in Vancouver there were so many bicyclists, skaters, and bladers who enjoyed this leisurely and spirited celebratory ride and roll through the exciting and diverse streets of Vancouver!

Our journey took us from the Vancouver Art Gallery via Howe Street, Pacific Boulevard, Cambie Bridge, Cambie Street, West Broadway, Granville Street, Granville Bridge, Davie Street, Denman Street, Stanley Park Causeway, Lions Gate Bridge, Stanley Park Drive and Beach Avenue to English Bay where I left the group after a fantastic two-hour ride with a lot of fun, great music, high fives with car drivers and much more!

Let me just show you some photos that I have taken with my iPhone while cycling and that try to capture the spirit of this unique ride: (click to enlarge photos)
