The last trip of the Outdoor Education calendar saw a group of small but determined students head out to Sumas Mountain for an afternoon ride on Squid Line. This trip was rescheduled from the previous Thursday due to a poor weather forecast (which ended up being glorious sunshine much to Mr. Rahe’s chagrin). The new trip saw questionable weather conditions in the form of light rain, but that did not serve to dampen the mood of the participants. The trip started in interesting fashion as Mr. Rahe broke his chain before the group had hardly left the parking lot. This resulted in a bike shuffle and unfortunately an end to the trip for Mrs. Wiebe who graciously sacrificed her spot on the trip to allow Mr. Rahe to punish himself on the mountain. After a strenuous 4km+ climb (for the novice bikers in the group) the plan to tackle Squid Line was brought to fruition. While this trail is easy by the standards of people who mountain bike regularly, it did present some challenges in the form of drops and technical turns. While Liam and Evan displayed their quality throughout the trip, bombing down the trails and gapping jumps, Mr. Rahe and Kentaro got the full experience and safely (for the most part) navigated their way down the mountain. Big thank you to Greg from the FVMBA and Mr. Wiebe who taught us some tricks and kept us safe on the mountain!
