Many thanks to bike vancouver | City of Vancouver for their support of the bicycle tour of Vancouver Murals!

Join a bicycle tour of mural artworks created for Vancouver’s 125th anniversary and through the Great Beginnings program.

The meeting point for the bicycle tour is the Roundhouse Community Centre, and from there participants will ride along the seawall and through neighbourhoods including Downtown, Chinatown and Strathcona and arrive at the newly-unveiled ‘River of Crows’ mural on McLean Drive, which was created to celebrate Vancouver’s 125th anniversary and follows the Mosaic bikeway.

The tours will be approximately two hours long and there will be lots of stops along the way where you’ll learn more about Vancouver’s diverse and growing collection of mural artwork.

The tour will start at 2pm with a few safety tips and housekeeping details from the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition (VACC) who will be joining the ride, and then we’ll be on our way. The murals bicycle tour will be approximately 2 hours long and will end at 1100 McLean Drive. Please bring water, a helmet and snacks and dress for the weather in case it is cool or wet.
