The year’s biggest competitive cycling event in Vancouver, the Gastown Grand Prix, returns Wednesday starting at 5:30, with one of the most challenging turns on the circuit located right in front of the Angel store, which is open until 9 p.m. on July 15.
For the first time this year, the event will begin with a youth race at 5:30 p.m., showing off the talent of about 50 of the best girl and boy cyclists who may become future participants in the men’s and women’s races, which offer $50,000 in prize money, including $12,000 for each of the first-place men and women racers.
We have men’s Desigual shorts on sale at 20% off, all Desigual shoes at 10% off and select Desigual at 35% off.
Angel Vancouver is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. Our store is on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, where Vancouver began. The photo above shows what the location of my store looked like in 1886.
