What were we doing a year ago?


In the summer of 2019, the CPABC Burnaby/ New Westminster Chapter hosted a morning hike and brunch in June and a barbeque in August.

The hike was the chapter’s official kick-off to the summer season.  Several dozen members hiked up the beautiful Velodrome Trail, which climbs steeply from the Barnet Highway on the north side of Burnaby Mountain and arrives at the Japanese totem poles at the mountain’s peak, before enjoying a scrumptious brunch at Horizons Restaurant (now closed).  The trail is 3km round-trip with 240 meters elevation gain – a good workout to build any appetite.

Fast forward to 2020….

Due to COVID-19, all chapter events are on hold.   But, you can still enjoy the outdoors.  We encourage you to venture out and enjoy the many trails throughout Burnaby’s various parks.  Take a selfie and share it with us on twitter @cpa_bc using #cpabc.

We’re looking forward to connecting in person once it is safe to do so.  Until then, be sure to practice social distancing.
