~~~ WHISTLER – Kokanee Crankworx Freeride Mountain Bike Festival~~~
Once you are in Vancouver, you HAVE to take a weekend off and explore famous Whistler, which is just 90min located North of Vancouver. No matter when you go – may it be Summer or Winter – there is always something to do! In Summer you can go hiking, rafting, even skiing and (what a perfect transition!) mountain biking!
During Whistler BC’s nine-day Kokanee Crankworx festival, the dirt-adorned put the revel in the free ride mountain biking revolution, bending physics and blowing minds with their tail-whipping back-flipping hard-charging ways. For the eighth year running, the venues of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park serve as modern day Colosseum, masterpieces of stunt and trail engineering, forum for the ultimate in gladiator contests and public spectacle.
In less than a decade, Kokanee Crankworx has become the authoritative free ride festival, a supercharged magnet for the world’s best riders, the definitive domestication of dirt in the service of epic endurance, supreme flow, monster air and gravity-fuelled mountain biking. The best mountain bike athletes in the world know that when gravity beckons, you simply say, yes mistress. I’m coming. So make sure you do.
~~~VANCOUVER – Chinatown Night Market ~~~
A beautiful night market, filled with traditional art crafts, ethnic food and fashionable gifts. You can find booths with all kinds of different merchandises on sale including creative gifts and decor, modern electronics, popular music CD’s, VCD’s, DVD’s, fashionable clothes and delicious snacks.
