For 20 years now, World class cyclists have been gathering in Victoria in June to take part in the annual Bastion Square Grand Prix and 2012 was no different. If you happened to be downtown along Wharf or Government Street the week-end of June 3 then there’s no doubt that you spotted some cyclists tearing around the streets that surround Bastion Square. For kids, adults, dogs, you name it, you can’t help but stop and enjoy this event when you see it, regardless of if you’re into cycling or not! Watching the athletes race each other at pretty amazing speeds, often within centimetres of each other is a real treat and getting to watch it all for free on our own streets, up close and personal is simply spectacular. Thanks again to the organizers for putting on yet another great event.
