Mayor Ken Sim “We are thrilled to welcome the fourth annual Tour de Concord back to Vancouver!” said Mayor Sim. “This isn’t just a cycling race – it’s a fun way to bring our city together and support the new St. Paul’s campus. With thousands expected to join in, and tons of free activities for kids and families, this event really shows off the energy and spirit of our community!”

Terry Hui, CEO Concord Pacific Developments Corp – “This year’s Tour de Concord is anchored by many synergies, with the community and St. Paul’s. Vibrant communities, sustainably, health and wellness are all intertwined.”  Hui continued, “The success of our St. Paul’s Burrard site will directly benefit the funding of the new St. Paul’s Campus. The Burrard site together with the new North East False Creek site, will go a long way to delivering healthy communities and thousands of the homes mandated by the Province. We are ready to go.”

“St. Paul’s Foundation is proud to partner with Concord Pacific to co-host the Tour de Concord event. We appreciate the generous support of Concord Pacific and the cycling community,” said Cecilia Tupper, Chief Development Officer of St. Paul’s Foundation. “Your support will help us transform health care at the new St. Paul’s Hospital, opening right here in False Creek Flats in 2027.”

“Cycling BC deeply appreciates Concord Pacific’s commitment to cycling and hosting this event every year since 2021,” said Joel Harwood, Interim CEO of Cycling BC. “With race proceeds going back into the cycling community each year, the Tour de Concord has become an integral part of the growing cycling community. It’s now a destination race, with teams from the U.S. and overseas already registered.”

The Family Kids’ Zone triples in size this year. The festival also has a beer garden, more food trucks, free treats, various bike vendors, and direct up-close viewing access to the exhilarating races.
