Abby Tri Preparations Are Underway!
So we're less than a month away from our next major event: The 1st Annual Abbotsford Triathlon Festival on July 23rd. After clearing some liability hurdles, we are signed up and registered for the event held near the airport at Albert Dyck Park. The BCTri Association was concerned about our start at the lake. With a flurry of activity including elbows, knees and limbs a flyin' as participants enter the water, Ben's safety was a huge issue (What if the boat capsized? etc.) So as it stands, we will be starting after everyone else, but looking forward to seeing how many we can pass!
ITEM OF INTEREST - Last week while cycling down Camp River Road, I came around a corner and encountered a cougar at the road's edge! Chh-yeah! The Game officer said cougars can travel as much as 30km per day. Although they generally stick to mountain areas, this is not the first sighting of one of these big cats in our area.
