A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending MEC London’s Bikefest. It was a great gathering of local clubs and organizations all coming together to discuss all things bike related. From hands on workshops and flat tire changing contests, to all the organizations and groups on hand to talk about trails, programming and all things cycling related; there was a little something for everyone at this year’s event. MEC staff even had those covered that forgot it was Mother’s Day with complimentary flowers available to take home to mom!

Real summer weather and a cycling celebration, you bet, and MEC Burlington’s Bikefest was the best of both.  The hot and humid conditions on June 29th were made manageable by the great shoreline breezes coming off of L. Ontario into Hamilton’s Confederation Park, the site for this year’s event.

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.

"We love bikes, and we’re throwing a party in their honour." That is the tagline that MEC Barrie used to promote their Bikefest on May 24, 2014 at Hardwood Ski & Bike, and we at IMBA Canada were thrilled to put on our party hats!

After a spell of never ending spring weather, the anticipation of a major cycling event at the stunning Christie Lake Conservation Area (CLCA), was more than enough to get cyclists excited.  The staff of MEC-Burlington and the volunteers from Hamilton Cycling Club (HCC) did not disappoint with MEC Bikefest! We were treated to some well executed programming that included a morning trail build, guided rides, clinics, yoga, and even a track-stand contest!

Sunshine all day, bikes everywhere, jazz in the air and the picturesque Distillery District were the backdrop for the Toronto MEC Bikefest this past weekend and well, WOW, what a great event!

Sunday May 27th, the day that Ryder Hesjedal won the Giro d'Italia (the first Canadian to do so!), his hometown of Victoria was abuzz with excitement. Watching Ryder win inspired cyclists of all types and ages to get on their bikes and get outside for a ride. This lead many of the attendees to the Cecelia Ravine Bike Park where the MEC Bikefest was being hosted.

Mountain Equipment Co-op just wrapped up it's latest instalment of their Bikefest in North Vancouver at Inter River Park and as the Rep for BC, i attended and flew the IMBA colours. The weather was fantastic, clearly the best weekend of the year, let's hope it's a trend.

The Mountain Equipment Co-Op annual Bikefest rolled into William Stevenson Park in Victoria on May 22nd. Despite the iffy weather, it is nearly the end of May after all, a Canuk's western final hockey game and the weekend where family's make their first attempt at camping, it went well.
