Cheryl is sleeping in and I am heading out to the annual Spring ride sponsored by many local businesses and of course Dual Sport BC. Here is what I can expect for the bigger ADV bikes and I will probably be the only grrl riding an ADV bike. If there are any other grrls there they will most likely be on a dirt bike. That is at least what I have seen in the past on these rides. Too bad more grrls do not get out. Hopefully if I don’t crash I can get some decent pics and video. Wish me luck!
The EZ C Loop
What you can expect from the C or Easy Loop
Forest Service Roads some active some not
Soft Gravel Sections
Lots of Potholes and Puddles
Small Cross Ditches
One slippery mud hole around a gate (don’t follow the guy in front of you too close)
Studs will be required if it is snowing
The route is fine for all types of Plated Dual Sport Bikes
Watch out for other traffic Cars Trucks, Quads, Other Bikes, but worst will be the B riders as they will be entering and exiting the main route for the 1st 12 kms then turning around
Yes you need a plate and insurance as you will be riding the road
Yes you need a BCORMA Trail Pass, this is what helps keep this area open (ICBC and the BC government give us no money.)
There will be a Breakfast and a Lunch both have a small charge and the money goes to charity
Finally be prepared to get dirty and have a good time
The video is not the route I will be taking….but for those who have light bikes this is part of the B route…crazy eh?
