Another fun HUB event today, generating some hoopla and attracting cameras. All to help promote Bike to Shop Day (August 13). Note the Mobi bikes in the mix.
Bikey shoppers (and speakers) included City of Vancouver Deputy Mayor Heather Deal. Other speakers included Dani Pretto, Chair of the Board of the DVBIA, who reiterated their support for more bike stuff all over their turf. As they articulate in their goals: “Downtown Vancouver will be more accessible by all modes of transportation”.
Contestant teams got a “shopping list” of items to “buy” from friendly merchants (like London Drugs). These included a giant inflatable donut and a vinyl LP record, among other things. Then off they went — and may the fastest shoppers win.
