Indy | Event | The Molson Vancouver Indy lasted from 1990 to 2004. It meant road closures, noise pollution, and thousands of Bridge & Tunnelers descending on False Creek during a summer long weekend. Also known as another one of Vancouver’s many shots at World Class City glory run amok. To protest all the car fetishization, the Wholesome Undy bike-ride was launched. There is actually a Facebook group dedicated to getting “this wicked sport back to Vancouver”. It has 54 likes. Good luck with that.
