Yes, we ride the last Friday of every month!


pride ride

While the Vancouver Pride Parade is Sunday, August 5th. There is a slightly faster version on the last friday of the month. July Pride Ride Critical Mass!

Be proud to ride a bicycle or skate in the city, come out of the gutter. 530pm at the VAG as usual. Maybe a little more colour and costumes this month? Dress up or down as much as you like! The more fun you put in, the more of a gay ol' time we will all have. All are invited, young and old. Especially families of all sorts. Let's celebrate our strength in one another: our diversity. In the streets, social and human and without fear of cars or bigots.

Post ride festivities will be at the beach or at the Anza Club Velofusion Pride Themed Party.

It will be hot!


  • world record naked bike ride, sunday the 29th, at sunset beach. At noon, bodypaint, at 2pm the ride. I haven't heard a lot about this ride and it was hard to even find the start location posted on the internet. So, I have my suspicions about the record numbers part. But, it will be surely be better weather than the JuneWNBR, and frankly if there is less media and publicity I find the rides to be more fun anyway. You get a feeling of freedom that is unmatched by cycling naked. And the media presense always makes it seem like it is not normal, though it really should be.

Tell the mayor to stop holding our city hostage to his dumb idea of firing the cityworkers right after the Olympics. They will settle for 36 or 48 months, not 39. Duh. Stupid Olympics. I wish they WERE striking to get it cancelled. Or maybe you should go over the mayors head to the corporations what own the Olympics!

In any case, it is a good time to think about how we think of the garbage as this magic box that takes away all our waste problems to where we can't see them. [kind of the the greenwashed automobile magic that takes away the tailpipe pollution to put it where it is less visable]. People are already talking about BURNING garbage and it hasn't even been a week! Seriously people, the 3 R's are not Recycle, Refill, Repackage but... REDUCE, and RE-USE... then recycle. Let's grow veggies in the boulevards! And also tear up some asphalt to do this.

    Great work guys!!

    I think it's great what you guys are doing.

    I first learned about you guys when I got stuck behind you guys on my drive home. I noticed people were getting very frustrated.

    Can I please recommend that you guys carry a huge sign with you explaining to drivers what you are doing and why.

    This would reduce frustration and get more people to support your cause.

    Good luck!
