Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of EBC and the 10th Anniversary of Bikeology
My, my, time whizzes past like a yellow jersey breaking free of the peleton when you are biking about creating velo-love. 30 years for Edmonton Bicycle Commuters’ Society and 10 years of Bikeology… Amazing. EBC has grown from a wee glint in someone’s eye to be North America’s oldest volunteer bike shop and the festival has transformed from a one-day pedal-infested bacchanalia with a strong eco-consciousness to a month of give or take 27 bikey events luring people away from their auto-centric lives. Glorious… but more importantly what does that mean for you? IT MEANS A BIKEY PARTY!
We’ll map out the past 30 years of EBC and the many people and projects that have made cycling in Edmonton what it is today. Smelly markers will be on hand so that you can add your contributions to our timeline. We have inviting all the bike shops and cycling clubs in town too so that we can have a grand bike party.
