Ride Recap: Good fun on the snowy trails this past Sunday. It was great to have Steve back leading rides after a busy summer away, his first ride back started a bit later after a few machines experienced dead batteries and low tires after a summer of neglect.
11 riders in 10 machines started out in brisk conditions that didn’t warm up much until late in the afternoon. Perfect early winter riding with up to 10″ of snow in places making for smooth trails and fun factor without danger of getting stuck.
10:00am Start Sunday October 25 Noble Canyon
Ready to ride at 10:00am at the bottom of Noble Canyon Road in Lavington. Remember to unload past the cattleguard then park your vehicle back alongside the road toward the highway.
This is a leisurely ride with approximately 6 or 7 stops throughout the day. The goal is to head up to Cactus Ridge, the hang glider launch and then hopefully make it back to Becker Lake and back down by 5:00pm.
Ride speeds will range from 30kmh on trails to 50kmh on roads will be suitable for upper beginner/intermediate level riders and up. A single tank of fuel will be adequate for the entire ride.
We’ll have a campfire at lunch so bring something to cook over the fire. The ride will go past one or more recreation sites for outhouse stops during the ride.
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.
