Bike Month 2016

It’s that time again.  Bike Month 2016.

What’s happening? Well, that’s up to you.  What are you doing/arranging/planning/scheming for Bike Month?

Here at and VELOfest, we are going to go out riding, so will be winding down the shop.  We have looked around us and we see so many exciting bikey things going on! We are proud and satisfied to have been a part of making Edmonton the #yegbike place it is. We know that other groups and other people are picking up our mantle and taking it for a test-drive (so to mix metaphors).

What do OUR changes mean for YOU?

  • We’ll continue with previous commitments, but will be winding them down,
  • If you have an event you want on our calendar, let us know and we’ll get it on in a timely manner,
  • We’ll attend your events if you give us some lead time,
  • We’ll forward your information to the appropriate groups, including, but not limited to: The Edmonton Bicycle Commuters’ Society (info[at]edmontonbikes[dot]ca) and the Bike Traffic Reporter, Karly Coleman who shows up on Peter Chapman’s show, Full English Breakfast.  You can reach Karly and Peter at bike[at]cjsr[dot]com.

Otherwise, may the wind always be at your back!

Kind regards, the VELOfest team

YEG Bike Party

You’ve been invited to a top-secret, pop-up bicycle dance party.  All you need is two wheels, lights and a lock for the-after-bike-party-party.

100+ riders will gather.

The YEG Bike Party Bike will bring the music.

We’ll cruise the streets, stop at a few parks and secret spots and unite the Edmonton Bike Scene.

No glass bottles, only positive vibes, leave no trace behind.

Bike Month Events

Eep!  Turns out when things change, it’s important to keep abreast of what’s changed…

As you may remember, there was a calendar of events that were hosted by Bikeology: Festival, to which you could merrily go and meet other bikey folk.  This calendar was updated to reflect the new look and feel of the  website, BUT we forgot that changes to one end meant changes to other ends… in this instance the CALENDAR!… Sigh… this weekend we’ll be working frantically to populate it!!  Trust us, there ARE EVENTS HAPPENING IN Bike Month.  Promise and they start tomorrow with the MEC Bikefest, from 11-2 p.m.
