UrbaCity Challenge

The UrbaCity Challenge is Victoria’s own urban adventure race! Teams compete in a free-form course, deciding their own route and completing unique challenges as they go. Heritage buildings and boutique shops are the backdrop for amazing feats of physical prowess and mental agility.

No one knows just what the challenges will be, and time is limited, so racers have to be quick on their feet in more ways than one.

All fundraising pledges go directly to Victoria’s own Island Prostate Centre.

Event Dates: Sunday, September 24, 2017

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, 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.

I wanted to explore a little further, to see how things might have changed, to camp again at Smelt Bay Provincial Park, and to test […]

Saskatchewan sends their Homeless to British Columbia

Saskatchewan sends their Homeless to British Columbia

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Social Services has a unique way of taking care of their homeless population, including those who may have a history of addiction or mental health. Their quick fix is to pay to bus them to Vancouver and Victoria in British Columbia. Problem solved. For them. Not so for BC, and not so for those who are shipped away to neither home nor job, and no health care until they qualify.
