An annual tradition, we head out for an evening ride to soak up all the evening rays we can. We’ll be leaving the bottom of King Eddy Rd at 6:00pm Thursday, June 21 for a tour of the Aberdeen Plateau.
The ride will suitable for beginner/intermediate level experience with speeds up to 50kmh on the main roads, slower on trails. We’ll be back down by 9:30-10:00pm, just before it gets dark enough to really need headlights.
Bugs are out so bring bug spray, a snack and a drink for one or more stops along the way.
Steve’s report on the ride: Good ride but soaked, cold, and dead end. 7 of us started out, Jason broke down and went home, quite a bit of tree cutting, some huge, Daniel had his chainsaw. Barely got by first washout, second one 1/4 mile farther quads could have made, but badly undercut, so we turned around. Kept raining until we got back to stage area, then nice, 1 billion mosquitoes, 1 bear. Great ride!
Join Steve on another exploration of the trails of the North Okanagan. Meet up this Sunday, June 10 at the Tim Hortons by Walmart at 9:30am or drive to Irish Creek for 9:45.
A really fun ride, thanks to all the Kelowna ATV Club and Okanagan Trail Riders Association volunteers who put together a great poker ride. The poker ride markers were nicely spread across the Bear Creek trails so we rode lots of trails we’d never ridden before.
Kelowna ATV Club and the Bear Creek OHV Riders will hold a “Poker Ride & BBQ” at the Bear Creek OHV Riding Area on Sunday 3 June 2018. The ride is open to all club members and riders from the Summerland ATV Club, Vernon ATV Club and ATV riders from the Okanagan Trail Riders Association.
Please note the trails at Bear Creek are limited to machines less than 50″ wide.
Trail fees are $15 for a day pass. The Kelowna ATV Club will subsidize it’s members for 50% of the cost ($7.50). Passes can be purchased at the Trail Head or online at the Okanagan Trail Riders Association online store https://www.okanagantrailriders.com/online-store/ .
The BBQ will be held in the afternoon at the Campsite starting at approximately 3:00pm. The cost will be $5.00 for anybody wishing to attend. The menu will be hotdogs, hamburgers, potato salad and a pop. Paper cups, plates and utensils will be provided.
The cost to play poker will be $10 for a single hand and $25 for three hands. The fees will be pooled and distributed as prize money. Playing poker is optional in case you would just prefer to ride and attend the BBQ.
