Knox Mountain Hike Scheduled for Sunday.

Calling all hikers.  Bunny has volunteered to help lead a hike up Knox Mountain on Sunday.  The hike should last approximately 2 hours.  Participants are to meet in the main parking lot at the foot of Knox at 9:30 AM.

In keeping with Beez tradition, coffee will follow the hike at a Joyce approved establishment.

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 ,,,

Killer Beez Arm Warmers

Since I have been asked a few times in the last few months about another order of arm warmers, I wanted to explore the “real” interest before committing to an order. The arm warmers are great for sun protection as well as some additional warmth when needed. It’s a very lightweight material.

If you would like to purchase a pair of arm warmers as shown, please let me know how many pairs and what size. Medium fits most women (such as Joyce and myself), Large all the men as far as I know (unless you prefer Medium). The cost would be $20/pair if you pick it up at a Sunday ride (the next two Sundays after arrival of package) or $25/pair if you want it mailed. Payment would be via Interac transfer.

Please email me directly with your “expression of interest”. If there is enough interest, I will respond and confirm your order.

In light of rising Covid cases …

As we want to continue riding and chatting over coffee, we ask that you only join any of our rides if you are fully vaccinated or it has been at least 2 weeks since your first vaccination.

With rising case counts among unvaccinated residents of the Central Okanagan, we have to limit the rides to those who have protected themselves and the people around them. Safety for our riders is always our first priority, whether on the road or in the coffee shop … we look forward to seeing you after your vaccination.

See you out riding!

Hike for Friday – August 6

We will be meeting for a walk to the famous “ovens” on Friday morning at 8am at the Hollywood Road parking lot for the upper Greenway (click here).

First it’s flat, then a few bumps. If the air quality is 5 or below, we will go!

Memorial Ride for Alistair Baillie

We are dedicating the group ride on August 14, 2021, to our beloved friend and long-time Killer Bee, Alistair Baillie, who passed away in October 2020.  This memorial ride will start at 8am from the Kelowna Cycle parking lot, and the route will incorporate sections from the A ride and the Killer Beez Wednesday night ride which Alistair rode with us many times over the years.  Alistair’s kindness, good nature and sense of humour made every ride or activity we shared with him special. 

Join us at to share your memories of our dear friend.

Beez Wednesday Group Ride Starts at 8 AM.

OK, we give up. 

It’s just too hot to ride at 4:30 pm.  Therefore the Killer Beez Wednesday group ride will start at 8:00 AM until further notice from the Kelowna Cycle parking lot.

Come join us for a relaxed 35 km ride around SE Kelowna – followed by coffee and gossip of course.
