Other important notes for Vanier CX 2010;
• Parking at the Space Centre is NOT free any more as of this year. Consider riding to the event in our unique downtown location, or else give yourself extra time to search for free parking within the surrounding area as an option to the pay parking.
• Please refrain from pre-riding until race day, as the ground is quite damp and we want to minimize impact to the grass so that we can be granted a permit again in coming years from Vancouver Parks. Your cooperation is appreciated.
