Bike to Shop Days

This weekend is Bike to Shop Days and we will be congratulating all cyclists at the West End market!  Make sure to stop by the info tent with your bike helmet and you can enter your name into a draw to win a gift basket of market goodies.  Have a look at all the cycling routes and protected bike lanes from the City of Vancouver to plan you’re route to the market.  We’re just a few blocks up from your bike trip along the seawall!
