Brush the dust off that old "Brownie" camera and come out for a day of cycling and picture taking. I'm certain there are some very accomplished photographers in our midst. Share your photography skills with your club members. Let your inner artist loose as we ride through NW Calgary looking for that perfect shot!

From Shouldice Park we will ride west on the Bow River Pathway through Bowmont Park. Then up the hill to the silver Springs Botanical Gardens. Next we will work our way towards the University through residential streets that offer opportunity for some floral pics. In particular we can cruise through the back pathways of Varsity where there are many beautiful gardens. We can break for coffee or lunch at the University. Afterwards we will head east through Confederation Park, hopefully to find some bird life there. Heading south we can stop at Burns Gardens then head east again along Crescent Heights for some city views.

Next it is down the hill through Princes Island to find some urban photo ops. With the film you have left (LOL) We will return to Shouldice Park along the south side of the river through Edworthy Park.

Maybe we can share some of our photos in an upcoming issue of Cadence? Lets talk about that.

We won't be moving very fast and will try to progress as a group...but obviously each of us will want to search out their own photo ops.
