Car Free PUP Ride #1

After a long year in isolation, the Shiny Blue Top Hat is ready to come out of hibernation — and so are we. Join us for a continuation of the Pop-Up Performance bike rides you know and love! Led by Mike, who can’t wait to ask you to support local performing artists by feeding a hat with your spare change, the first PUP ride of the year will kick off Car Free Month on August 29th. 

We would love to have you back, and warmly welcome new participants. For those of you joining us for the first time (yay!), a PUP ride is a group bike tour with stops along the way featuring outdoor performances from local artists. You don’t have to be a pro cyclist to join us, just bring your sense of humour and adventure, a bike light for your safety, and your pals if you want to. 

In typical PUP ride fashion, performances are kept a surprise until the day. Please be aware that rides are not a closed loop - that is, we will not end where we started. 

PUP rides are free to attend and donations to Car Free Vancouver Society are much appreciated. We suggest showing your support for our artists by bringing $2 for each of the 3-4 performances you'll see on the ride!

See you there!
