Team Escape Velocity is proud to host the first annual World Tuesday Night Championships Community Night at the University of British Columbia’s Thunderbird Stadium on August 7, 2007. The evening’s events will include a fun kid’s bicycle “roadeo” that will emphasize bicycle safety, handling skills and safe cycling in traffic. Escape Velocity will also hold the regular Tuesday Night races and have representatives on hand to explain the discipline of “criterium” racing to interested members of the community.
“Escape Velocity has been holding the Tuesday Night races at UBC since 1989”, Tobin Copley, Team Escape Velocity Membership Coordinator and Board of Directors member said. “As a member of the UBC community, Escape Velocity would like to reach out to the new and growing residential community on campus to promote both safe and competitive cycling in Vancouver.”
