For the second year in a row IMBA Canada attended the MEC Bikefest on the beautiful North Shore of Vancouver. This year the amazing amount of sunshine brought out an abundance of attendees. The Bikefest on the North Shore is a fantastic community event, bringing together cyclists from all disciplines like BMX, enduro-racing, mountain bike enthusiasts and young families. It was especially fantastic to see so many kids on run bikes, BMX bikes, and small pedal bikes rolling around the expo area eager to find stickers and free snacks.
