Clean Up Exploration Ride

Ride Recap and Photos

A fun ride today that originally split off with half the group checking trails for snow and the other half looking for garbage dump sites. We used our Garmin inReach devices to decide where to meet for lunch at Damer Lake Rec Site then continued to Grizzly Lake to complete the loop after lunch.

10:00am Ride Start – Sunday May 29 – King Eddy FSR

Join the ride this Sunday morning to see what trails are snow free and assess the number of dump sites to plan for next weekend’s cleanup

Everyone in attendance must complete the ATVBC Waiver prior to riding so please complete the waiver ahead of time and bring your phone with the confirmation email so we can check you off. Once you’ve filled out the waiver you’re good the entire duration of your current membership.

The pre-ride safety meeting starts at 9:45am and the ride heads out at 10:00am sharp. We should be done and back down at the parking area by 4:00pm.

King Eddy FSR is 9kms east of Vernon on Highway 6 with parking along either side of the FSR.
