FAKBRT Pictures plus May 18 & 19 plans …

The First Annual Killer Beez Road Trip (FAKBRT) was a smashing success! Thanks to Mike and the other committees ๐Ÿ˜‰ for all the hard work. We saw breathtaking scenery, road many km’s in Washington’s Methow Valley and replenished with BBQ, beer, pizza and the outstanding breakfast at the Chewuch Inn. Besides our Kelowna crew we had “Guest Beez” from Alaska and Vancouver join us! Have a look at the pictures and put this on your calendar for next year!

Saturday May 18: Meet at Kelowna Cycle at 9am for a ride if the weather is good! If enough people are interested throughout the summer, we will make this a regular ride for Saturdays.

Sunday May 19: Regular ride now starts at 9am. If it’s rainy, come for coffee.

Wednesday Rides are starting this week ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿป

With enough daylight to allow cycling late afternoon, we are now starting one of our weekly favourites: the Wednesday ride aka JOYCE’s Ride! Until Joyce is fully recovered, we will have to keep this going without her but in the meantime, meet at 5pm in front of Kelowna Cycle on Pandosy Street.

The ride is usually 35km and will get us back to the coffee shop around 6:40pm or so! Social, fun ride, nobody gets dropped. It really is all about the coffee (tea, water etc.) after ๐Ÿ˜

The route was scouted and has some slight modifications right now, due to ongoing construction in East Kelowna. See picture!

West Kelowna Rides

From Michael:

It is time to start the Friday ride in West Kelowna. Weather permitting we will start at 10am for now. As usual, from Starbucks (Louie Drive). Hope to see you there.


Start of group rides …

After another great hike on Sunday, we are now officially starting the cycling season!

For now, the Sunday rides from the Bean Scene will be starting at 10am. As long as the weather is good, meet there and join the group! No-drop, starting with lower mileage, routes change every week.

We will announce when the Wednesday (Mission) and Friday rides (West Kelowna) are ready to go!

Last hike – April 7

Last Sunday’s hike was a lot of fun so I hope all of you can make it out on Sunday April 7 for our last hike before getting on the bikes …

As per usual, we will meet at 9am at the Bean Scene for a nourishing coffee before carpooling to the trailhead.

We will try one of the newer hikes in Kelowna, the Lebanon Park. It is located 5320 Lakeshore Road, with a new parking lot on the east side of the road (we cycle by there all the time).


Starting the hike at 10am from there!
