    My personal favorite road of the ride. Early Saturday morning going over the Highline Road above Anderson Lake. It was completely dry from D'Arcy to Lillooet. The road was in excellent shape and offered the best scenery of the ride too.

    MOKO and I got home safe Monday night, Gravel Eater holed up in Kamloops till Tuesday for a new tire on his KTM.

    Great ride again Ross, Thank you. We were late on the KVR, stopped at Tulameen but I guess we missed you. Hope you had a great ride to finish off Sunday.

    Red Lake Road from Kamloops to Clinton, Notice the skid-mark going OFF the road, Randy !!!!!!!

    This was the first time that I had participated in an organized ride of that capacity and really enjoyed all three days! And Manxman hats off to you for all the backbone work you would have had to do to make this trip a huge success. your traill line up for all three days where so diverse, it was just a really nice mix. Anyhow here is a link to the photos that i took on my camera. (wish I took more pics):beer p.s. the pics of the food are at the mt. currie coffee house in pemberton, only thing open at 6:30 for breakfast awsome breakfast burrito, really tasty

    Gentlemen ... thank you so much for an absolutely great weekend.

    The route sections were awesome - the Highline especially - but for me the riders made the whole weekend an absolute blast.

    Thank you and see you next year.

    Thankyou Ross!

    We had a fantastic time riding & meeting some great people :freaky . Next year the beast(s) will be wearing a set of square treads so we don't miss ANY gravel :cry, sun or rain. Day two on the narrow, upy-downy, windy stuff was pure joy:clap.

    I have a buch of pics that I'll upload later. CHEERS.. tim

    Thanks to all those that attended the forth BCBTR. I really appreciate so many making the time to join in and continue to make the ride fun. Even some bad weather didn't seem to dampen the enthusiasm.

    There were 38 riders in total, making it the best attended Big Trailie Ride so far.

    The only real bummer was Incendo's GS getting a total restyling on Saturday. Thankfully he is ok and says he will be back.

    See you later,
    Manxman
