Biking the Vedder Loop-Chilliwack April 29, 2021

A new trip on Extreme Outdoor Education schedule saw students participate in a 22km bike ride along the Vedder Rotary Trail in Chilliwack. Trip participants were greeted by the beautiful views of the river, and the diverse ecosystem of the surrounding area. Students learnt about basic bike safety and usage, as well as large group management and communication on the trail. Highlights included Josh’s several wheelies, skipping rocks on the river, food trucks, and Jimmy’s choice of bicycles. All said students saw and experienced first hand what makes this trail system so popular, while learning how to ride as well and absorbing some Chilliwack history in the process. Special thanks to Mr. Radons and Mr. Loewen for lending their expertise on this trip. Outdoor Education students please leave a 100 word blog response below.

    My favourite part of the trip was when we rode along the Vedder River. The most shocking part of this trip was when I rode under the power lines! I was surprised when we arrived at the food trucks and I wished I brought my wallet. The hardest part was near the end when my legs started hurting. My least favourite part of the trip was the three days after when my leg muscles were very sore. The coolest part was when we went down onto the riverbed and walked around. The scariest part was when we went across the bridge. Overall this trip was a fairly easy ride. It was the longest bike ride I’ve ever done but I enjoyed it.
