Mt Ida ride with Salmon Arm/Enderby Club

Ride Report: WOW!

That sums it up pretty well, one of those days that goes to the top of your list for all time great rides. Thanks in large part to the Walker family going out several times to pre-ride, cut blowdown and make alternate trail choices around the landslides.

Thank you Martina, Brenda and Allen for all the work and a great ride!

The first real ride of the spring season that spanned more than 75km, stopped at numerous viewpoints, tackled all kinds of different trail conditions and stopped for drinks and story time on the way home, a good day!

This late spring and slow snow melt kept us from pinning down a location for this ride until now. Thanks to Allen and Brenda for pre-riding to make sure we could get through.

The ride is open to club members, friends, guests and anyone who wants to come along.

The ride heads out from the parking areas on the FSR at 10:00am, expected return to the vehicles is 3:00-4:00pm. Ride distance is estimated at 60km.

For riders leaving from Vernon we’ll meet at the north Tim Hortons on 58th Avenue (across from Wal Mart), the convoy leaving there at  at 8:45am for the ride staging area.

Come prepared for early spring weather which when combined with higher elevations can mean rain or snow. Bring a lunch, not sure if we’ll have a campfire but we’ll try. Don’t know if there are any outhouses along the ride for bathroom breaks.
