          Carousel Theatre is elated to become official charity partners with The Tour de Biennale, the Vancouver Biennale’s charity bike ride – Hurray!

          The Vancouver Tour de Biennale is the only charity bike ride that combines the incredible beauty of Vancouver with recreational cycling and arts & culture. The Tour de Biennale is all about connecting Vancouver’s outdoor lifestyle with its thriving arts and culture scene. The ride provides an amazing opportunity to see the city and the public art

          Art, fresh air, sunshine, and a bike! Is there anything that sounds better?!

          What is the Vancouver Biennale?

          The Vancouver Biennale is a biennial public art exhibition that brings celebrated and emerging international artists to Vancouver area public parks, beaches and urban plazas, transforming the city into an open-air museum.

          What’s the ride like?

          Join pros and cycling enthusiasts on a 110km self-paced urban ride or a 125km challenge ride that will take you from Vancouver to Steveston, through parkland, seashore and glass towers, before a triumphant finish at the highest elevation in the city at the top of Queen Elizabeth Park. There’s also a non-competitive tour “medio” ½ route for those who’d like to ride at a more leisurely pace. The ride takes place on Sunday, August 19, 2012.
