Sometimes you need to search far and wide for great outdoor adventures, and other times all you need to do is look down the street. A group of 12 Extreme Outdoor Education biking enthusiasts spent a sunny Wednesday afternoon experiencing mountain biking along Discovery Trail and in Downes Bowls. Students were introduced to the beauty of the Bowl, one of the Abbotsford’s best kept secrets, and gained confidence with mountain biking in preparation for the upcoming trip to Vedder Mountain. Highlights from the trip included Caelen “air mail” Mackenzie and Josh “fear no bump” Stewart flying off the jumps, and the epic search for Karol’s lost glasses (yes they were found). Ms. K even managed to pull off a sweet end over end roll, though the landing may have landed her in the shrubs initially, and then in the doctor’s office later (yikes). Mr. Rahe even managed to get in on the fun and coined a new move called “front tire air” which roughly translates to “old guy who is too chicken to take a jump with any real speed”!
