Bike the Blossoms

Bike the Blossoms

The turnout at Bike the Blossoms, one of the final events in the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival, was phenomenal. A rough minimum of 200 people took to the streets for a whimsical combination of pleasure ride, blossom spotting, and bike solidarity. A partly sunny spring afternoon doubtless helped, when the unreliable forecast instead announced for rain. The demographic breadth was particularly striking to me. I suppose blossom scouting plus active transportation is bound to draw a range of ages and personalities.

The annual ride seems to be slowly becoming a Vancouver spring tradition.
