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.

"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!

On June 16, Calgary's MEC BikeFest started under cloudy skies but finished in a blaze of sunshine!  The move to the Eau Claire area, sandwiched between downtown and Prince's Island Park along the Bow River, put the party squarely in the middle of the city.  There were food trucks and bands and some girls with hula hoops - it was awesome!

It's pretty rare that we see Vancouver-esque weather here in Calgary [LOL], but that's what we had today.  Regardless, folks had a good time at the 2011 MEC Bikefest.  The rain drove people to the shelter of the IMBA tent, where I held them in thrall with my tales of mountain bike trail advocacy.  Muahahahaha!  Thanks to everyone who came by to say hello and ask questions about IMBA and what we do.  Now, off to take a very hot shower and grab a pint...

Hi there!  This is my first blog post for IMBA Canada as Alberta Regional Coordinator.  I've been working for the CMBA for the last few years, and I'm thrilled to hook up with IMBA as well.  Tomorrow I'll be at the MEC BikeFest Calgary, selling a table full of IMBA goodies and talking to the many and varied citizens who stroll by.  Feel free to come on over and say hi!
