Well, it may not be a long weekend TECHNICALLY (although we suspect a few people might be taking Monday off), but there is sure a lot going down in Lynn Valley on June 28/29! A big splash will be made by the BC Bike Race, which will see 600 bike riders launch their seven-day stage race from Argyle Secondary. Their Lynn Valley route is the first part of a journey that will take them to Vancouver Island, up to Comox and over to Powell River, and eventually to Whistler by Day 7. Here’s a look at their Sunday, June 29th Day 1 North Vancouver route – and if you’d like to see some of the action in person, come out the End of the Line General Store, the designated “cheer zone” at the top of Lynn Valley Road. Kids are invited to take part in a bike race of their own, down at Argyle School field on Saturday the 28th. Registration begins at 10 a.m.; further details are on our Events Calendar. (A Farmer’s Market will also be on site from 10 to 2!)
For those of us who aren’t the two-wheeler type, head on down to Lynn Valley Village on Saturday for Lynn Valley Legion’s annual community appreciation event – an Old-Fashioned Carnival. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can take part in carnival games and goodies, enjoy Smartee Pants the Clown, meet a veteran, learn more about the work of the Legion and other community groups in our neighbourhood, and participate in crafts and storytimes thanks to the library and Karen Magnussen rec centre. Hope to see you out and enjoying the fun!
