Montreal Cargo Bike Criterium - The 1st Edition of Cargo Bike Racing in Canada!

That's a wrap!

The first edition of Cargo Bike Racing in Canada took place in MontrealΒ Β this past weekend at the Jackalope Festival. Allo Velo is proud to have hosted the Montreal Cargo Bike Criterium.Β 

Even though there was a race aspect to the event, the real goal was to finally bring together the cargo bike community in Montreal. Whether you are a messenger or a parent, this was an open venue for cargo bike enthusiast.Β 

The track consisted of a 500m loop with aΒ  a few tight turns, an optional kicker and a cargo loading zone. That was definitely a highlight, because each rider had to fill their cargo bike on Lap 2 with 1 beer canister, a winter bike tire and a pool noodle with a cow bell attached. There were 3 categories; Non-e two wheeler, e-assist two wheeler and e-assist 3 wheeler. MULI CYCLES definitely made a few wins.

With the help of sponsors, we were able to give out quality gift bags and prizes to each participant. We thank our sponsors; Abus , Schwalbe, HLC, Escape and Active brands/Sweet Protection.

We expect to host future events and an annual criterium. Visit and follow our Facebook page for all photos and videos.
