We might be close to getting the skis out but for this Saturday, we are going to stay in town and enjoy the snow here! The weather is clearing, as are the roads.
Meet at 9am at the Bean Scene Dickson, chat over coffee, then head out to Scenic Canyon at 9:45am (which is mostly flat and should be easy to walk)! Start will be at 10am there. We will see how far we make it!
For those who are keen we could discuss a snowshoe outing for Sunday …
Wishing all the Killer Beez and their families a wonderful New Year … Lots of bike km’s, coffees and no flat tires!
Do you see yourself in this video? Comment on the post if you do 🙂
It appears that many Beez enjoy the winters and go xc skiing, downhill skiing, backcountry skiing or snowshoeing. In my opinion it’s a GREAT time of the year, and a good workout on the xc ski or snowshoe trails in the sunshine when the snow is perfect and there is no cars or traffic lights or noise … is hard to beat! Add to that lunch with your friends afterwards at the cabin (yes, socially distanced) and you have a perfect winter’s day!
Here is a good article that might be helpful for those of you who still dread the winters …

Shaun kindly shared this video with the Beez … Cyclists and BC Law.
To all the Beez that are isolating, distancing or quarantining: I hope you are all doing well! I know some started getting out on your bikes but for now, we cannot encourage any group rides!
I wanted to send some links to wonderful films from the Banff Film Festival … Just in case you have some indoor time on your hands 🙂
The Frozen Road
I’m also attaching the full list of films available online that aired within the Banff Film Festival over the years. Some real gems in there!
Bob recently shared this link to a BC Government survey on plastics waste:
“It helps if more people participate. You can be one.”
Please make sure to fill it out! We want to continue riding in an unpolluted environment, and we have to do our part. On that note, Frances’ suggestion makes a lot of sense:
“Lots of people making small changes can make a big difference. As cyclists who often stop at coffee shops after our rides, we can be big users of plastic. This applies more to those of us that drink cold drinks as those tend to be sold in plastic cups with straws. Since we usually have empty water bottles on our bikes by the time we stop at the coffee shop, consider asking the staff to put your purchased drink in your empty water bottle instead of using a single use plastic cup!”
For all our hot and cold beverages before and after a ride, let’s make sure to use reusable containers, whether it’s our water bottle or a porcelain mug at the coffee store. No more paper or plastic cups!
