2nd Annual Dave Lyman Memorial Mountain Bike Festival

The 2nd Annual Dave Lyman Memorial Mountain Bike Festival is coming up Sunday September 6th. Located at Belcarra Regional Park in Port Moody, this years event should prove to be bigger and better. Some of the events we will be staging this year include:

  • Cycling BC sanctioned Mountain bike races for all ages and abilities on some of the best trails in the Lower Mainland. Upgrading points are available for licensed racers, and unlicensed riders are welcome to challenge in one of the Citizens categories.

  • CPTA Trials Series, Event #5, for those unfamiliar with this type of competition, its like obstacle course riding on steroids. Its amazing the terrain these riders traverse.

  • Smash the Lada Pinata, the VACC bike toss event (don't worry somebody else's bike not yours) and a flat fixing time trial.
There will also be food, drinks, and prizes for volunteers and racers alike, with a trail maintenance day and barbeque on Saturday, August 29th. Cycling BC members are eligible for upgrading points for trail maintenance as well.

The purpose of the festival is to raise awareness and money for cycling advocacy and honour the memory of Dave Lyman. Dave was killed by a motorist on September 3rd, 1996 while cycling home from work. He gave an incredible amount of time and energy to the cycling community. At the time of his death, he was Vice-President of the mountain bike sector of Cycling BC, and one of only two people in BC with a National Level Commissaire license. Dave also spent many hours building and repairing trails for others to enjoy. Anyone who rides a mountain bike off-road in BC has probably benefited in some way from his efforts.

This festival is a positive way to promote cycling and raise awareness for the need to improve facilities in the Lower Mainland. Money generated will benefit local cycling organizations efforts to advocate for improvements.

The bigger this event is, the more awareness we can generate so come out and enjoy the fun. If you can help out, or would like further information, call Robin Lyman at 937-DAVE, or Dale Ewanchook at (604) 215-TOAD. For information on the CPTA trials event call (604) 261-7712.
