UPDATE: I found some pics of last night’s event on Flickr today. 2006 Tour de Gastown Pictures.

Vancouver’s Tour De Gastown happens today right around the corner from my office. It’s a huge event and is expected to draw a large crowd of cycling enthusiasts from all over BC.

From the Tour De Gastown Website:

With annual crowds totalling almost 35,000, the legendary Tour de Gastown, organized by the Wedgewood Cycling Team on behalf of the Gastown Business Improvement Society, is one of the most famous races in Canada and the centerpiece of BC SUPERWEEK; British Columbia’s most prestigious week of bike racing, and now another great fundraiser for the BC Cancer Foundation!

Gastown ClockIt should be an exciting evening of bicycle racing – head out and show your support for the athletes and the BC Cancer Foundation.

  1. Is it? I posted the picture before the event occurred…It’s a cycling image of Vancouver from istockphoto.com.

    If you’ve got a pic of the Tour de Gastown that you’d let me use I would be happy to correct the error. Thanks, Jeremy

  2. I’m pretty sure that photo is taken at Helmchen at Homer, looking east down Helmchen… which would mean the bike race is the Yaletown Grand Prix (of which I also have a bunch of photos).

    Feel free to grab any of the pics I have posted for use – just link back to the pic/photoset page if you do 🙂
