UrbaCity Challenge

The UrbaCity Challenge is Victoria’s own urban adventure race!

Game On! Teams compete in a free-form course, deciding their own route and completing unique challenges as they go.

All fundraising pledges support Victoria’s own Island Prostate Centre.

Event Date and Time: Sunday, September 23, 2018 from 8:30am to 2:30pm

Jade City

Named for the jade deposits found to the east of the high community, Jade city is located on the Stewart-Cassiar Highway 37 in northwest British Columbia.

Get Some Island Time: Quadra Island and Cortes Island

Get Some Island Time: Quadra Island and Cortes Island, British Columbia, Canada

How time flies. Almost 20 years past, I spent numerous days bike touring on Quadra Island and Cortes Island, located east of Campbell River on Vancouver Island.
