Summer has taken it’s time arrive in the Fraser Valley, but now that it is here it seems to be flying past.
Below are a few ideas to re-connect and enjoy the beautiful BC weather this August from the Tourism Langley website.
There are at least 186 routes in, through and around Langley. Here are just a few of the most popular rides:
Scenic route through a variety of landscapes. A few big hills but mostly bike paths with very little traffic.
Total route distance: 35kms
If you’re looking for a bit of wine with your weekend ride, then you’ll want to check this one out. It starts you off at Campbell Valley Regional Park, then leads you temptingly close to the tasting rooms at Vista D’Oro and Blackwood Lane wineries (book a reservation ahead of time). You’ll end up in Aldergrove Regional Park where you can loop around and head back for round 2.
Total route distance: 40kms (or 20kms one way).
For the more ambitious riders, this one takes your right to the the border, through some beautiful farmlands and back home to Langley.
Total route distance: 41kms
Nothing says wide open spaces like driving through some of Langley’s scenic back roads. You can find a suggested route here that will take you to green spaces with some other great local stops added along the way. Stop in for a bite to eat or grab something to go from one of our restaurants and cafes. Browse unique, local shopping areas and don’t forget to pick up some libations to enjoy later at home!
Langley is fortunate to have a variety of golf options to choose from, any of which are a fantastic excuse to get outside and moving.
To book your tee time, check out any (or all) of these courses:
Over two days on September 4th and 5th, the popular festival is going to be live streaming world class Jazz, Blues and Latin artists, creating a festival experience through interactive games, shows, and even a Moment of Joy that will get you up on your feet.
Right now, they’re encouraging people to start planning their own Backyard Festivals where you invite a few socially distanced friends over and host this year’s jazz festival right there in your own backyard, wherever that happens to be.
For more information on how to stream the festival, how to get tickets to the feature shows, and how to attend in person, check out Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival.https://www.youtube.com/embed/LTLtjdGQ9HI?wmode=transparent&modestbranding=1&autohide=1&showinfo=0&rel=0
