BeaBea Huser is 97.5 years young! Bea is a retired teacher and she taught students that had hearing impairment as well as English at all grade levels.

I met Bea last spring when she joined my Cloverdale neighbourhood Urban Poling walking class in Edmonton. She was an inspiration for all of the participants. She particularly motivated a younger woman who recently had hip surgery and another woman that recently quit smoking. They both pushed themselves to keep up with her as she confidently strode up the very steep Connors Hill. This picture is taken just prior to her morning walk over to the Muttart to have a look at the smelly Putrella flower that just boomed.

Bea’s beautiful smile and joy for walking is truly an inspiration for all that have the privilege to cross paths with her! Submitted by Urban Poling Instructor & Master Trainer, Sue Yackulic, Edmonton Alberta.

Winter Poling

When walking on snow covered surfaces, remove the rubber tips to expose the carbide tip which will provide better traction.  Add snow baskets to prevent the poles from sinking deep into the snow.
