March of Dimes at Outward Bound Canada's Urban Base Camp Week 6

We're an energetic group of lovely people who are currently in the March of Dimes L.I.F.E. Program at Outward Bound, sponsored by United Way. We're learning how to improve our independence. 

On Wednesday November 13th we used various bikes from Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation for the day. In the morning after playing an active version of Broken Telephone and Silent Opera, we practiced our bike sense and hand signals. When we were all comfortable we set out to explore the many paths around the buildings and ventured into the quarry.

In the afternoon we couldn't wait to get back on the bikes and go for a longer journey. We went on the Beltline Trail where the yellow leaves were sparkling with sunlight.

It was a challenging uphill trail in sections but we made sure we all worked together. Along the way we stopped to play 20 Questions and reviewed the importance of dressing up to keep warm on chilly winter days. We all voted whether we wanted to keep exploring the Beltline or return to Brickworks and we kept biking towards the series of bridges.

The lines of light on the trail were truly beautiful to see. We are so lucky to be able to enjoy the juxtaposition of the crisp cool air and the visually warming scene.
