Gastown Grand Prix
5:30 pm

Gastown

For one day, the charming cobblestone streets of Gastown are transformed into one of the fastest, best-loved and most challenging cycling race courses in North America. This event is free for spectators and is guaranteed to be a fun afternoon/evening out.

A Criterium, also called a “crit”, is a high speed action-packed bike race that is held on a closed course, that is usually between 800 and 1,500 meters. Criteriums are mass-start races where riders travel around the course for a set number of laps or time: i.e., 50 laps or 90 minutes. During the race, riders will also race for prizes called primes (pronounced “preems”). If a rider is involved in an accident, they can have one free lap to repair the damage in the mechanics pit before re-entering the race.

The event combines three different categories of races: youth, women and men.
