This might not be directly cycling related but falls into the general fit-healthy category. Personally, I was quite excited to see that the only vegetarian restaurant in Kelowna, LAKE TAI (previously on Pandosy, now the big SOPA construction site) has reopened on 1958 Kirschner Road. The food is as excellent as before (the owner cooked for the rich and famous in Taiwan before moving to Canada), has interesting mock meat options (sweet & sour, veggie steak, etc), the service is friendly and fast, and the prices very reasonable. It’s a healthy and yummy option for a nice dinner – expect to spend about $30 for two people. If you try it for the first time, let me know what you think!

With the temperatures getting a lot warmer, I imagine more and more people showing up for the Sunday Beez rides now … 10am downtown at the Bean Scene! Still some snow left for us “diehard” xc skiers 🙂
Some select snapshots of our three-day adventure during the Golden Triangle 2011 are now posted in the Gallery. Spectacular scenery. And yes, lots of food (you guessed from the pictures?) 🙂
Much to Joyce’s dismay, Cafe Artigiano (the start of the Westside ride up until now) has closed.
The Westsiders will meet instead at Starbucks by the movie theatre on Fridays at 09:00am, for the West Kelowna Friday ride from now on.
I have added a “Classifieds” section to the Killer Beez blog.

Follow this link to read about the 10 Secrets to Cycling with Traffic! Some good tips in there, and even though we try to stick to quiet backroads in East Kelowna or elsewhere in the Okanagan, we do encounter enough traffic to pay attention to this advice. It is worth doing whatever we can to avoid any issues or confrontations.
