Lovely party, thank you to Pam and Shaun for hosting the Beez! It was great to hang out with more time to chat and without sweaty lycra around the table 🙂
We all had a great time!
After several glasses of wine 🙂 we all agreed to move the start time for the Sunday ride to 10am, starting October 15!
See you there!

From one of our friends from the UK:
Wonder if you know about Ride London? Dave and I did the Ride London 100 at the weekend- since the 2012 Olympics we have a 3 day cycling festival in London, including pro World Tour road races and on the Sunday 24,000 people doing a 100 mile ride over closed roads right thru the city centre past all the major landmark buildings and out into the countryside, returning to finish in front of Buckingham Palace. It’s quite special, even if you live here.
If you or any of the Bees fancy it, first step is to enter the ballot which opens next week (August 7). You’ll hear if you have a place (you have about a 1 in 4 chance) in Feb 2018, and the ride date next year is July 29th so plenty of time to prepare. Entering the ballot commits you to nothing, you only make your decision when offered a place.
Good afternoon Kelowna Killer Beez,
We are confident you will enjoy the program we have for you. We will be riding three great stages over two days, totaling over 100km and 1,750m of racing. This special combination of time trial, hill climb, and pursuit road race is sure to fulfill your appetite for road racing. We have great welcome packages coming together for all the racers as well as some nice new T-shirts, also we have amazing prizing for podium finishers and incredible draw prizes that all racers and volunteers will be eligible to win. Please find more information on our website www.kickinghorsecup.com. Registration is now open! $40 per stage or $100 for the weekend.
The first 40 racers to register for all stages will get a Kicking Horse Cup T-shirt included for free.
If you’re looking for something to do on the August 19/20 weekend, please consider coming out to support our event. And please help us get the message out there and share this information with your friends.
I have attached a flyer that you can use to distribute the information. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
