Ride Recap: an excellent day on the trails with Allen leading for 6 hours that took the group over 70kms of trails ranging from cedar rainforests to fire recovery lodgepole pine, Douglas Fir stands and down into the heat of the valley with open grasslands and giant Ponderosa pine.
Pam wins the award for both taking and being part of the best photo. She took the first photo below and was passenger in the Commander in the second photo that slipped into the rain rut at the impossibly narrow spot on the trail.
10:00am Start Sunday June 21
Join all the dad’s, uncles, grandpas, nephews and cousins for a great day on the trails at Mt Ida (ladies are welcome of course!).
The ride will start at 10:00am Sunday morning from the staging area 1km up the FSR from Deep Creek Road (click here for Google Map and Directions). The convoy will leave Tim Horton’s on 58th Avenue across from the Vernon Walmart at 8:45am.
Remember we need to observe physical distancing so keep a safe distance from all other riders at all times from first arriving and throughout the day.
Plan on being out riding until approximately 4:00pm. We’ll stop for lunch but can’t guarantee we’ll have a campfire so pack a lunch, your camera, GPS and all safety and weather gear for the day.
Rides and events are open to everyone, we encourage new riders to come out for a couple of rides to meet club members, find new trails and get a sense of the club before joining.
