Check out the SUP Race coming this Saturday in Cadboro Bay at Gyro Park Beach! You can read about the event here on Facebook. Competitors can sign up for the race at this link.
People wanting to get to Gyro Park on Cadboro Bay can arrive by bus -- take the #11 from downtown or from the University, and get off at the corner of Cadboro Bay Road and Sinclair Road by Pepper's grocery store.
Taking the bus is a smart idea because on Saturdays the parking lot at Gyro Park gets pretty full. Taking the bus with a stand-up paddleboard is inconvenient -- unless you're carrying one of the four models of inflatable boards from Advanced Elements. These boards fold up neatly into carrying bags that can fit into cars or be carried on the bus.
