On Sunday July 18 – Easy Rider held the first ever SUP Trek down the North Saskatchewan River.
We all met at the Muttart Conservatory at 8:00 AM and loaded up the Sprinter van and shuttled out to Shalom Park, which is right beside Rabbit Hill.
From there it was four hours and twenty minutes of casual paddling to go 35 km to Rafters Landing in downtown Edmonton.
We did make a couple of pit stops along the way, first on a sand bar about 10 km into the paddle and then right at the outflow of Black Mud Creek at approximately 25 km into the paddle.
It was a great time and an awesome way to spend a nice day out on the water.
Thanks to everyone that came along and to Beckolay’s, Mah’s and Jonathan for your shuttle services.
SUP – where ever there is water!
