Led by your tour host, retired Olympian, Linda Schaumleffel, this tour will meet near Spinnakers Pub, and pole walk across the NEW BLUE BRIDGE during the opening day celebrations. Tour consists of pole walk to and across New Blue Bridge, a small tour through new Chinatown, a treat from Chinese bakery, exploration of festivities on Old Blue Bridge, and return to Spinnakers. Included in tour will be a festive bandana, a group photo on New Blue Bridge emailed to you, an authentic treat in Chinatown, a visit to inspiring art installation, plus historic notes from tour guide, Linda Schaumleffel. Bonus: increased fitness because we will be pole walking (so bring your poles). Friends and family who don’t have poles may borrow poles from Linda and join our tour (reserve poles early, limited supply).
You can get to Spinnakers easily from the Esquimalt, Westshore, View Royal, Penninsula side of town. Coming across town to Spinnakers, go across on Hillside or Bay Street. Leave extra time to find parking. You can also take the bus to Spinnakers. A smart person might make a reservation at Spinnakers for an early brunch, and then go on Pole Walk adventure. If you plan to go to Spinnakers after the walk, make a reservation!
