Sunshine Coast Ride: Great Explorations
Last weekend Andrew and I helped run the Sunshine Coast Mountain Bike Ride with company Great Explorations. This is a fantastic two day point to point ride with an awesome salmon bbq on Saturday night. It is the same weekend every summer and I definitely recommend it to everyone who likes to ride bikes and meet some great people. I was in charge of first aid and yoga.
The trails on the sunshine coast have a fun variety and are welcoming to most level of riders. There is climbing and good descents. We began the ride at Halfmoon Bay and completed and camped Saturday night at Porpoise Bay in Sechelt. The second day we rode all the way to the ferry. We lucked out with the weather.... a little bit of rain, a little bit of sun and a whole lot of goodness.
I was able to lead a little yoga, partner stretching in the mornings to get the guests muscles moving. I set up my slackline and taught some folks the basics of slacklining which always feels so rewarding. The food was delicious and plentifull all weekend, we had fresh fruit, sandwhiches, potatoes, pies, chips, and more....yummy yummy....
My favorite trails are those close to Langdale off of Highway 102 and 103...fun fun fun.....
At the end of the day Andrew and I hit up the little kids park and he taught me how to ride the pump track... I need more practice....haha
this week I am getting things organized for a trip I am guiding: The Best of BC (a little riding, a little hiking, a little rafting and a whole lot of good times and beautiful views).
live, love, laugh,...DREAM!
