On November 30th 1979 Pink Floyd released an album called “The Wall”. 36 years later on June 27th, 2015 a group of elevated individuals will bike the Sea Wall during the entirety of the album which is 1 hour and 21 minutes.
This ride will meet at Science World (Creekside Park) at 8:30 pm, ride at 9pm sharp and will end at Spanish Banks Park . At Spanish Banks we shall enjoy music and beverages until you feel like leaving. This is a leave no trace, be safe and ride at your own risk event.
This ride is part of the Velopalooza cycling festival, June 12 to June 28, 2015.

The ABCs of Family Biking Workshop includes (limited) on site childcare as well as prizes & snacks. All FREE thanks to funding from the Vancouver Foundation Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grants program. 🙂
