The sun is breaking through the clouds to highlight the first day of the second Victoria International Cycling festival (see last year’s wrap-up here).
Tonight, The Robert W. Cameron Law Corporation Cycling Series kicks off with time-trials along Dallas Road. Road races happen on Saturday, in Metchosin, and the exciting Bastion Square Grand Pix criteriums return to downtown streets on Sunday. See my 2010 roundup here, incl. video.
Tomorrow the official VICF launch party rolls out at Phillips Brewery (6pm-10pm) with live music and, you guessed it, beer.
More than a dozen cycling events fill the calendar this year, including Ryder Hesjedahl’s Tour de Victoria, on June 24th.
Crank up the music!
