    You are welcome to join dr650bc & myself on the

    B.C. BIG TRAILIE RIDE 4
    JUNE 19-20-21 2009

    This year's ride is mostly new but as usual it is designed to highlight the Big Trailie bikes. All bikes sizes are welcome. The route follows some of the most enjoyable and scenic backroads in this part of the province.




    The 2009 ride starts out from the parking lot at the Cariboo Lodge Resort (1-877-459-7992) in Clinton.

    The ride route is marked in yellow on the maps.


    We are staying at the Hitching Post Motel (1-604-894-6276) in Mt. Currie Friday night. All the rooms at this motel are being held under the BCBTR name, so use it to reserve your room. When these rooms are gone, you will have to go into Pemberton to find other motels.

    Day 2 goes to Logan Lake via the Hi-Line road over Anderson Lake, a favorite of ours. The rest of the day's route is a series of fun backroads and ending up at the Logan Lake Lodge (1-250-523-9466)

    Day 3 is familiar to those who were on last year's ride. Once in Princeton and after lunch, it is farewell until next year.

    I recently signed up w/ ADV. The Trailie ride sounds interesting. I recently purchased a Moto Guzzie Stelvio (similar to a GS). Would the trails be suitable for 2 up riding? My significant other half is interested in going too.

    Is anyone else from Vancouver going this year? If we were going, maybe we could all ride up together.

    Have looked at last year's Trailie Ride and it looks good!

    Anyone thinking of camping? I stayed at the Nairn Falls CG last year and its nice, dont know of the ones around Logan Lake though. When do you all get things rolling in the mornings? Looks like fun will try to work it in, now that I have a more dirt worthy mount.

    The only road that might be a problem 2 up is the Highline if it is wet. For anyone who didn't want to do it, there is a excellent paved alternative, the Duffy Lake Rd.

    The usual departure time is 8 am. That gives everyone time for breakfast and gassing up before we leave.
