We couldn’t have asked for a better day with perfect blue skies and smiling faces.
19 machines and 25 riders did the morning tour that started from 2km on Noble Canyon Road and wandered over toward Dixon Dam then back along the western road before stopping to take in the amazing view over the Coldstream valley and City of Vernon.
Next stop was lunch at The Ponds recreation site followed by the fashion show, awarding of prizes then a quick ride back down to 2km.
Ride Leader Steve was back for his first ride in several months, he took the riders looking for a bit more adventure on one of his favourite rides to Cactus Ridge where the group debated just sitting and enjoying the view and sun for a few hours.
After a few minutes riders were restless again so the group headed east to complete the loop around Bardolph Lake and home.
9:30am start Sunday October 31 @ Noble Canyon Road
It’s a ride, a halloween costume contest and a GPS challenge to find the hidden candy all in one! Come as you are or come in costume, it will be a fun day on the mountain.
Please email [email protected] by 5:00pm Saturday if you’re coming so we have enough food for everyone.
Starting a bit earlier with the 9:30am safety meeting followed by the costume catwalk then off on a ride to a secret location where you use your GPS to find the hidden candies.
Come back from your candy hunt for a BBQ lunch then we head back down and home with plenty of time to get ready for trick or treating with the kiddies.
Prizes for those participating in the costume contest and the GPS candy hunt.
