May the 4th Be With You (and Us) Ride

10:30am Ride Start – Saturday, May 4 2024

You’re invited to join the Vernon ATV Club as we meet up with our friends from the Shuswap Backcountry Riders at Skimikin Lake north of Salmon Arm.

The Skimikin Lake trail network is a great riding area for quads and side x sides. Expect to be riding until approximately 4:30pm, the trail difficulty rating will range from beginner to upper intermediate and a single tank of fuel will be sufficient for the day.

Bring a lunch and all the recovery/safety gear you should have with you. Spring riding could mean wet and cold so remember to pack clothing for all conditions. Spring conditions also means there could be trees down on the trails so be prepared to hop off your machine and make your way to the trail blockage to help. The Vernon club rides regardless of the conditions so even if it’s raining, someone will be there!

If you’d like to join the convoy from Vernon to Skimikin, meet at the Tim Horton’s parking lot on 58th Avenue opposite Walmart. We’ll leave the parking lot at 8:30am to allow for drive time and the preride safety meeting, the ride gets underway at 10:30am.

NOTE: there is construction on Highway 1 so you must turn left onto Bolton Road to get to Skimikin Lake.

We’d like to know how many people are planning to attend, please email [email protected] to let us know if you’re coming on this ride.
