Hi gang, John Espley (Mountain Man) here. I usually write a Father’s day blog about all the wonderful aspects of being a father, including spending time with your children. This year I thought we should take a look at fathers from a different angle. A more serious perspective. Being the community relations guy for Accent Inns and Hotel Zed, I get to work with so many wonderful organizations, many of which are connected to or support fathers in one way or another. (more…)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE APRIL 1, 2014
VICTORIA, BC – Accent Inns is once again at the forefront of innovation in the highly-competitive world of hospitality, with the addition of one more offering to their already-specialized services: equi-accommodation, aka the provision of rooms for people and horses, together. For many years, the BC-based, family-owned hotel group catered to guests travelling with their pets, their bicycles and motorcycles. Now, horses – whether for show, racing, riding or just companionship – will be shown the same outstanding service that travellers have come to count on at Accent Inns since 1986. (more…)

Paul is ready to get on the relay bike and does so around 930pm. Mladen has had a good section. A small mechanical problem when the fuel line cracked and the bike stopped but he was able to make the repair quickly with the tools he had. The bike has been going for 22 hours straight now. Pretty amazing that has been the only issue. (more…)
