Activities - Active & Fit



New Directions Cycling

We will explore a sample of local bike routes to get you started exploring  your new home town and nearby islands 

Ride level is  rated  easy to moderate.  

Road bike or hybrid or e-bike will work best on paved and light gravel routes including Galloping Goose and Lockside trails, Dallas road, east Sooke Park trail to Sooke potholes, N. Saanich Flavourful Trail, and E&N rail trail plus 1 Gulf island / San Juan island trip.  You need some gears, not a townie bike as Victoria has hills!

Plan on a full day because we will ride relatively slowly and make several stops.

Meets: Monthly on a weekend dates TBD



Leisurely 1 Hour Saturday Morning Walk

This group is for leisurely walkers, or someone who hasn't been walking for a while & would like a slower pace, or someone who has an injury that is keeping them from walking with the other much  more active Saturday Morning Walking Group.

We meet every Saturday for a 1 hour leisurely walk followed by coffee.  This is a wonderful way to meet new & "old" friends as you walk in and around different Victoria neighbourhoods. 


Meets:   Every Saturday   9:30am – rain or shine!



Saturday Morning Walk

We meet every Saturday morning for a 1 ½ hour walk followed by coffee.  This is a wonderful way to get to know people, get some exercise, and learn about our different Victoria neighbourhoods.


Meets:   Every Saturday 9:30am – rain or shine!


Hiking

LET'S WANDER WHERE THE WIFI IS WEAK

Welcome to beautiful Vancouver Island - a paradise for hikers.  Join us in exploring local hiking trails at a reasonable pace, enjoying the sights along the way.  We meet monthly for a moderately paced hike.  Hikes are generally 5 to 8 kms.  Partners, friends and well behaved dogs are welcome.

Meets:  3rd Sunday of each month



Emergency Readiness Group

Did you know Victoria has a one in three probability of a damaging earthquake in the next 50 years? It’s not a matter of if an earthquake will happen, but when. But it’s not all doom and gloom - preparing for an emergency can be fun and interesting, and you don’t have to do it on your own. The club’s Emergency Readiness Activity Group – relevant for all sorts of emergencies, not just earthquakes. Check out also the Emergency Readiness Forum on the website - your go-to place for useful information and website links for members' reference. 


Meets: several events are organized through the year for new club members (First Years), members of the activity group and subscribers to the Emergency Readiness Forum.
