Friday Night Mount Ida Ride

6:00pm Friday, April 12, 2019

Ride Recap: Another fun evening outing, this time at a location we’ve only done once a couple of years ago.

10 machines out including 4 new faces, great to have you along for the ride!

Not all club rides are going to be night rides, but it sure is nice being able to squeak a ride in after work!

Checking out Mt Ida with an after work ride. Make sure you’re headlights are working as we’ll be out for a couple of hours and will be getting close to dark, or in the dark when we finish up.

If you want to join the convoy from Vernon we’ll be leaving the parking lot by the Tim Horton’s on 58th Avenue at 5:10pm.
