Greater Vancouver’s first major public ride of the cycling season is the Pacific Populaire. This event encourages participation by all cyclists regardless of fitness level, cycling experience, or age. For many riders it is an opportunity to enjoy a relaxed spring ride, fresh air, and exercise in the company of other riders in our vibrant cycling community.
The event is also an introduction to the sport of randonneur cycling, where the rides called “brevets” (200 km+) are non-competitive in nature often characterized by cooperation and camaraderie between riders. Road safety is the primary concern for randonneurs. No roads are closed for the Pacific Popularie or any other randonneur event.
