Men’s Walking Group | Wednesdays | 9:00am
The Men’s Walking Group meets once a week for a walk in Pacific Spirit Park. The walking is good, but the best part is the conviviality of the group. Coffee time starts at about 10:30am, usually at UBC Golf Course. If you just want to come for coffee that is all right, too. Participants vary each week, and we encourage you to join us when you are able!
For the month of January we will start from the parking lot at Locarno beach, at the north foot of Tolmie Street. Starting the first Wednesday in February we return to our regular starting spot at 16th and Sasamat – ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Get on the email list for notices about possible changes by contacting Pat Burns at email@example.com. The walking happens rain or shine, and the walk in the woods takes an hour and a half or so. Good walking shoes for bad weather are helpful. We have an email list and encourage you to sign up to receive reminders. Or just show up any Wednesday!
