In Memoriam

It is the most upsetting of all posts when we have to announce the loss of one of our beloved Beez. Having just chatted with Bob over coffee, smiling and happy after a 90km ride, his very sudden passing just days later shocked us all. There are lots of shared kilometres on our bikes around the Okanagan to remember, and Bob will be missed. We offer condolences and supportive thoughts to Betty and the rest of the family.

Local Hike on Saturday April 9

We will be hiking Scenic Canyon from the Hollywood parking lot to the ovens. Mostly flat, then a few ups and downs along the creek. Cool stuff to see along the way! A favourite, especially of Joyce’s … well, as long as we find her on the trail 🙂

Meet on Saturday at 10am in the parking lot off Hollywood

Snowshoe Saturday

Last snowshoe outing! We will meet Saturday, April 2, at 9am in the Summit parking lot at Nordic (right turn off Highway 33 at the high point, 2km after the Big White turnoff).

The plan is to go to Thunder Mountain and enjoy the views. Estimated duration: 2.5hrs.

A thermos with coffee for afterwards is always a nice treat!

Weekend Plans March 26/27

Here is your Beez update for this coming weekend – we really hope to see some of you after the long winter break!

Saturday – March 26
This might be the last weekend for skiing, and we plan to celebrate the end of the ski season with a snow outing for everyone … Meet at 9am at the Summit parking lot on Saturday morning. Some might ski, depending on weather and grooming, some will snowshoe. We might go to the lookout tent or do a tailgate party. Please bring a thermos, some snacks and maybe a blanket/pillow/chair. 

Sunday – March 27
We are planning to hike around Dilworth, even if there is a chance of rain (bring a jacket). Meet at 10am at the Bean Scene on Dickson for the first coffee.

Meet at 10:30am at Dilworth Dr/Glacier Ct to hike. 

New starting times for the weekend group rides

Summer cycling is coming to an end! Hopefully there are still a few weeks left of nice fall weather for rides amongst coloured leaves.

Starting Saturday, October 9, the start times for our Saturday and Sunday group rides will change to 

10am.

Please pass this on to others who might not read the blog. Keep an eye out this fall for announcements for hiking adventures.

Unofficial Killer Beez Jerseys

Jersey

We have “test ordered” a nice-looking Bee jersey to check the quality and fit. It’s a great design, either in black or white, soft fabric and good quality. The shorts are very cushioned with gel inserts.

Here is the link to the jersey; you can see the shorts as well as full sets there too. Let me know if you have questions. 

Dilworth Hike – Friday October 1

A sunny day is forecast for Friday so we will be meeting at 10am to do the Dilworth hike. If you have never done it before with us and our local guide Mel, you will be surprised how many trails there are on Dilworth Mountain. The full loop including Baldy is roughly 10km with plenty of options to cut it shorter.

See you in the parking lot off Dilworth ,,,
