This day-long public cycling event combines active participation and fun in the outdoors with an international art and cultural experience. The route will take riders to more than 22 sculpture and New Media installations throughout the city.

The Vancouver Biennale mounts, on a bi-annual basis over a 22 month period, an exhibition of major public sculpture installations, performance and New Media events in public spaces within the City of Vancouver-in City parks, beaches, urban plazas and public transit venues, creating a ‘legacy’ of public artworks by the world’s leading Contemporary international artists for citizens and visitors to enjoy.
