High Velocity: Art Wheelers

Art historians Carol-Ann Ryan and Rosemary Marland Lennox are equally passionate about art and cycling. As the "Art Wheelers," they've combined the two in a unique city bike tour that explores some of the many public art pieces that dot Vancouver's seawall, and delves into some of the city's natural and social history to give the pieces context.

It's a leisurely tour, escorted by one of the Art Wheelers and a VACC bike guide. You can choose from a False Creek/Coal Harbour Tour, or the Olympic Legacy Tour. The fee goes to support a community partnership with Kidsafe that takes innercity youth on a bike led art tour through their Young Leaders Program.

Check out the Art Wheelers website to register. Below are some some pictures of Rosemary and Carol-Ann at a couple of stops on tour. (Actually, it's ten "Stops" in the case of the first photo.)
