The hike will be roughly 9km with some climbing in the beginning but also great views over the lake. 

Meet at the Bean Scene on Dickson at 9am to carpool (25min drive to the trailhead).

Bring some water and snacks.

Ready for Hiking November!

After a wonderful potluck at Pam and Shaun’s house, we enjoyed the first Beez hike of the fall season in the sunshine up Spion Kop! We always make the best of the gap between cycling and skiing!

Check Geoff’s RELIVE here …

The plans for our 4 November hikes are as follows:

Every November Sunday:

Meet at Bean Scene – Dickson at 9am for coffee. All hikes start at 10am. Meet us there if it makes no sense to drive to the coffee shop first (e.g. West Kelowna). We always try to carpool from the coffee shop.

The hikes happen in ALL weather conditions 🙂 (i.e. bring a warm jacket, gloves, a hat if it’s cold or wet!).

Schedule:

November 3: Mel’s Mt Baldy Hike (meet here)

November 10: Keith’s Angel Springs Hike (meet here)

November 17: TBD – contact me with suggestions …

November 24: Shaun’s Rose Valley Hike (meet here)

Final Update from Paul! Hooray!

My ‘Bicycle Trip Across Canada” is COMPLETE!! 
 
I dipped my toes in the Atlantic Ocean at Shediac, New Brunswick then celebrated at La Coast pub with Lobster Poutine & Flying Boats red ale. 
 
The ride was 6098km over 53 days (average of 115km/day). There were some harsh total rain days north of Lake Superior but many more beautiful riding days.
 
I met many kind people who helped me in so many ways. It was a wonderful trip and I’m so glad I did it.
 
Thank you to everyone who sent me words of support and encouragement.

Update from Paul: Ottawa

Hello from Ottawa! 

Lots of tourists on parliament hill. There is definitely an increased security presence. Beautiful views of the Rideau Canal. Now it’s on to Montreal. Hope to reach the Atlantic Ocean next week.
