Thanks to these 11 brave souls who came out on a snowy and soggy Sunday morning to trim back the alder and branches on the Rock Spine Trail.
10:00am Start Sunday October 18
A couple of trails are getting pretty tight with alder doing what alder does best. We’ll spend a couple of hours of trimming the bush back to restore the trails to rideable condition then we’ll hit the trails after lunch for some quality ride time.
The club owns a couple brush saws (weed wackers with blades) and a pole saw that we’ll bring. We will may need a couple chain saws as well but we’ll also need people to throw the trimmings off the trail.
Safety is our top priority, bring all appropriate personal protective equipment if you are going to be operating power equipment. COVID-19 is still a reality so everyone needs to keep their distance throughout the day and stay home if you’re not feeling well.
Bring something for lunch, we’ll have a campfire to roast food and warm up by. Remember at this time of year and elevation the weather changes fast so bring clothing for all conditions.
The ride portion will be on FSR and trails ranging from Green (Beginner) to Blue (Intermediate) experience levels. Assistance is available to get riders through should we encounter a difficult obstacle along the ride.
Speeds will range from low speed trails up to 50/60kmh on FSR sections. A single tank of fuel will be sufficient for the anticipated ride distance of less than 80kms.
There are numerous recreation sites along the ride so outhouses will be available if needed.
Vernon ATV Club 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.
