Introducing the Awesome Grand Prix 2018


V.I.A. is partnering with Bicicletta to bring you a new, family-friendly event to check out.

On July 28th we’ll be shutting down the blocks surrounding Jonathan Rogers Park in Mt Pleasant for the first annual Awesome Grand Prix!

The race itself is the BC Criterium Championship and will attract elite talent from our province.

Attendance is FREE and we’ll have a Red Truck Beer garden as well as a food truck caravan.

A Saturday famjam, we’ve got events planned for the whole family throughout the day. Our announcers will be calling the action and our kids criterium will feature a fun, safe course on the grass for little ones courtesy of Cycling BC’s iRide team.

Come hang out in the park with us and watch the championship races go down! Learn more at and watch for features about the racers and more right here on V.I.A..

The event goes from noon until 8pm on July 28th.
