GPS Training Ride

11:00am Saturday April 27 – King Eddy Road

GPS Training Recap – 8 brave riders ventured out into the sucky Saturday morning weather which included heavy snow with accumulations of 4-6″ at King Eddy.

All the hidden coordinates were found except the bonus location. We’ll try to run the course again when the weather improves.

Thanks Bob for the photos!

Yes we’re going to King Eddy again. Before you roll your eyes, we chose King Eddy because it is centrally located and has abundant parking where we can hold the BBQ and Club Meeting in the evening.

Download a GPS Track (GPX File) of the trails used for the training course.

Come out to learn how to run your GPS and build your confidence in finding your way out and back. If you don’t have a GPS you can ride with a buddy or just come out and we’ll pair you up with someone.

Experienced GPS users are invited to attend, we’d like to pair you up with an inexperienced GPS user to help them find their way.

What to bring:

  • your GPS
  • GPS handlebar mount so you can navigate and ride
  • charge cables or batteries to keep your GPS running for 4+ hours
  • your laptop computer (if you have one) so we can look at the software used to transfer files to your GPS

Hang around after the GPS Training for the BBQ and the short Club Meeting, also being held at King Eddy starting around 6:00pm.

Rides 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.

The Vernon ATV Club promotes responsible all terrain vehicle use. Riders must must carry their driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of $200,000 liability insurance for riding on forest service roads. Quad riders must wear a helmet, side x side riders aren’t required by law to wear helmets but we recommend they do.
