John Spoke at the Velo-city Conference on June 28th, 2012.
Here is his message :
On behalf of the Government of Canada and myself as a fellow cyclist, I am delighted to be here with the organizers, sponsors, and participants of Velo-City in Vancouver! One thing you’ll learn when you’re here – British Columbians love the outdoors and even more, love to share it with the world. I hope you’ll have the chance to take a spin, not only around Vancouver, but around the many other bike-friendly parts of our province.
There are several upcoming biking opportunities in the area, such as the BC Bike Race in July; the RBC Whistler Gran Fondo in September, and the second year of my “Ride the Riding”. You may also want to try out some of the routes along the Sea to Sky Highway, which covers some of the choicest parts of “the most beautiful place on earth”, as I like to call the area I represent.
However you choose to experience BC, I thank you for your love of cycling, your commitment to health and fitness, and your support for environmentally friendly transportation.
With best regards,
John Weston, M.P. for West Vancouver – Sunshine Coast –Sea to Sky Country
MP John Weston welcomes you to join the ride: Ride The Riding 2.0
