Did you know that there is a whole cycling subculture in Metro Vancouver that’s focused on fast-paced road racing? Ahead of the upcoming Awesome Grand Prix (July 28, 2018 at Jonathan Rogers Park), we sat down with Graham Fox, the current BC Criterium champion and one of the owners of bike shop Bicicletta to take us for a spin through his world.

Graham Fox (Lindsay William-Ross/Vancouver Is Awesome)

This week’s co-hosts Adam Nanji and Lindsay William-Ross (not cyclists) get up to speed with Fox (a big time serious cyclist) on the ins and outs of cycling in Vancouver, from how to get started in cycling to those polarizing bike lanes.

Also on the show this week, a quick recap on the province’s not-news about ride-hailing services, a live “Golden Girls” stage show done with puppets, and Lindsay’s recent epic trip to Tofino.
