I'm surprised so few cycled to the event, I guess was my point, but the weather certainly didn't help.

I would have thought hard-core cyclists wouldn't be deterred by a little rain.

Gentle mist can be very annoying.

I didn't cycle because of weather. Bused instead. I normally ride almost every day. Just this terrible summer weather is getting me down.

Absolutely a great event though. Had a really good time.

Don't get down yet ... summer doesn't start for two more days!

But where does it stand on the "that would make a good name for a rock band" scale?

Very low on the "rock band" scale, but VERY high on the "easy listening" scale.

A Muzak channel. Or a "feminine hygiene" product from the makers of Summer's Eve.

Best place to park to go there? I suppose the parkades are ideal, accessed off blanshard or government?

The City's info is:

"Although parking will be free at City parkades and on-street meters on Sunday, alternate transportation is encouraged as it will be busy downtown. 

To accommodate the road closures on Douglas Street, temporary Transit stops will be available on Blanshard Street and signs will be posted.

A free bike valet will be available on Pandora Avenue to accommodate cyclists."
