A thread for planning the event first brought up over in Orange Crush. Let's talk dates and routes and get this thing happening! I'll put a few ideas out there to get the discussion started: Duration: 4 days? Means 3 nights camping and, if we keep it central, most of 3 days of riding, with enough time for getting to and from home for everyone. Dates: Aug 1-4? The 4th is a stat. holiday in BC, so for us here in this province, only one day off would be required. It's late enough in the year that higher terrain will be snow free. Where: I like the idea of an West-East traverse across the lower portion of the province. That would mean chances to explore the Southern Okanagan, Kootenays and maybe the Purcell/Crowsnest regions, all very cool areas with very different scenery and fun riding. On dirt, of course. I also like the idea of having easy / hard routes for the whole ride. Thoughts?
