Another Rainy Summer?

The June Critical Mass was a rainy one
Last Summer was the Summer of extreme rain.  Lots of flooding.  This Summer is turning out to be much of the same. There's still 2 1/2 weeks until Tour De Jasper starts, but will the rain clear up in time?

Bike camping at Purden Lake

Me with my Summer riding companion, Deanna

Squirrel goes to the lake

This weekend I went on a 124 km bicycling adventure to Purden Lake and back with my Summer travelling companion, Deanna. (62 kms each way)

We left the city in the rain, but it cleared up as we reached the top of the hills out of the bowel of the City.  It was still quite warm despite it being overcast.

A Fun Overnight Practice Run

Practice ride around town
Squirrel is back at it!

In case you are wondering why I haven't posted as much recently.  This is the reason.  I'm building myself up as much as possible for the upcoming Summer adventures.  Not that I am not in shape already, but extra long distance riding beforehand doesn't hurt.

Pope Mountain and Fort St. James

It was a wet Sunday mornings, and despite my hesitations I decided to go hiking with the Ramblers.  It surprised me to see 30 other people wanting to hike too!  I guess bad weather is no excuse!

Quesnel Pinnacles Hike

Rob talks about flowers on this hike
 Rob and Bonnie led 21 of us through the Pinnacles Provincial Park by Quesnel last Sunday.  It was another nice warm day for a hike.  It's a bit of a drive to go on this hike which isn't a long one, but it's worth it.

Training ride to Tabor

Today I rode to Tabor Mountain and back with my friend Mary-Jo.  After seeing it rain all week, it was nice to see Sun!
I rode easily up the hill to the airport.  We stopped at Mr. G's for a quick break.  We also took lots of breaks along the way.
One of the stops was at the actual mountain where there is some awesome skiing in the Winter.
We bumped into some friends who were also doing a training ride!  Good to get ready for it I would say.
This is a test post with photos and story posted from my tablet.  Thanks for inviting me again Mary-Jo!

Bike to Work Week- The Celebration Stations

Last week was Bike to Work Week in BC.  This was the 4th year that it was held in my town and I again participated!  I love celebrating riding my bicycle even though I bike almost 365 days a year.
