What we're about

For weekend early birds (we depart at 8:15 sharp and get back about 10/10:30). Typically 2-10 persons show up for each walk. We talk, laugh, and have fun ... time passes fast.

Walks are 8-12 km, but you can drop off anywhere along a planned route so that you can do your preferred distance.

Slower walkers can go at their own pace. Fast walkers continue on ahead and occasionally loop back to say hi.

GOOD WEATHER:

Core walks easy to get to by transit:

1) Central City Mall to Bear Creek Park

2) Central City Mall to Green Timbers Forest

3) Guildford Town Centre to Tynehead Park

2) Guildford Town Centre to Green Timbers Forest

Occasional unique walks: Just to mix it up a bit, we replace our core walks with something different, like Barnston Island, Serpentine Fen, Hawthorne Park, BC Parkway to Byrne Creek Ravine, etc.

BAD WEATHER: We go outside rain or shine. Only icy sidewalks/streets that makes it unsafe to walk will keep us indoors (Surrey SFU/Mall or Guildford Mall).

This group has been going about three years and attendees have all been terrific persons with rare exception. For those rare exceptions, hear this: this group warmly welcomes persons with all physical characteristics: all genders, all races, all ethnicities, abled or PWD, all LGBTQ, etc. If you have an idea in your head that some physical characteristic is a problem for you, then this probably isn't the group for you. You have the choice to change your beliefs/ideas; no one can change who they are physically.

When we are in areas where we can maintain more than two metres distance, you can take it off for your comfort.

We will go south from the Mall to the BC Hydro path eastbound, then back up through Green Timbers and back to the Mall. How we accommodate different walking speeds: 1) everyone walks the pace they want. If it is too small of a group to split into two, then you are responsible for advising others if you need to slow down. We are happy to accommodate because we want it to be a good experience for you.; 2) when there are a few more people and some are faster, the fast walkers can be speedy so that they enjoy the walk and can occasionally loop back to say hi and join the slow walker for a bit then speed off again :) ; and, 3) finishing at different times is a good thing because then we know everyone enjoyed their preferred speed.
