Road Safety

Reminder to all cyclists to ride single file.  Share the Road.  Be especially careful on East Side Road.  Be cautious of irate vehicle drivers.  A silver/grey medium size pick up truck drove across the yellow centre line attempting to force a local cyclist off the road while riding up Green Mtn. Road on Friday May 31 afternoon.  Try to get license numbers to report such incidences to RCMP.

June 4, 2013  Jeff Symonds swam Sicamous to Peach and back, this sunny afternoon, and said it was quite nice.  Weather is finally warm!!

2013 Barley Mill Bare Bones Duathlon

Results will be posted under the "Results" tab.  Thanks to all of our volunteers for helping, and to the athletes for coming out.  A special thanks to Steve and Jean King for the fantastic announcing and managing the timing for us, and to Don Gemmell for the results.

The 20th annual Barley Mill Pub Bare Bones Duathlon took place under sunny skies, and made for a hot, early May duathlon race. This years race was based out of the parking lot of the Barley Mill pub, making for a longer bike race that athletes wanted, and a challenging run course having a gradual descent, finishing with a gradual climb. 85 athletes started the race this year, and water was the fluid of choice to counter the heat.

Triclub supporting the pool

The Penticton Triathlon club earlier this year, asked if the community center pool needed some equipment, and offered to donate some money to purchase such equipment.  On October 24, the Penticton Triathlon Club presented pool staff member Amanda Lust with a cheque for $1666.06 towards the purchase of new penant flags, lane signs and flippers.

The Peach Classic Triathlon Society, in recognition of Investors Group support for many years, is wishing to donate some money to 2 groups that Investors Group recommended.  The recipients of financial support from the Peach Classic Triathlon Society are the Keremeos Kids Triathlon Club, and the Okanagan Falls Kids of Steel triathlon.
