    I had a great time. Met some new friends and some old ones. It was great to see so many people having fun. :freaky

    Manxman, thank you for another great BCBTR, you continue to amaze! :clap

    Manxwoman, great food! :dg

    I have some nice video to edit and get posted up here, but it might take a week because work is going to get in the way. So hold your hats I'll get-r-done... :0-0 :D

    I also had a fun time teaching a few of you how to ride better and enjoy the dirt with less fear. It was great to meet those of you that showed up for the training. Maybe we'll be able to put another one of those classes together for next year. :ricky

    Six-hours to get home, three in a cold rain. :puke1

    Thanks again Ross for an incredible weekend. I never did count how many riders showed up this year but in every conversation I had with people the one topic that came up every time was how impressed they were with the work and attention to detail you put into this event.

    Well done to you and Manxwoman......... :smile6

    What an amazing weekend!
    Thanks so much to Manxman for putting this trip together. The organization was impeccable and made things just that much better. A sunning array of twisty pavement and great gravel... just like advertised :clap. And then the BBQ! Great food great folks, what could be better.

    For all you that were there... I really enjoyed meeting and riding with you and hope to see you all again next year.

    Thanks again Manxman and everyone for making the BCBTR 5 a really wonderful event.

    Excellent routes, great people, and 1500km over 4 days. What a great way to spend a weekend.

    Thanks to Ross and Bev for everything, I can't wait for next year.

    I left Princeton and took the KVR for the obligatory BCBTR photo ;)

    I rode the KVR to this...then took the trail down to the river and popped out at Larson Hill on the Coq.

    My pictures are here, but I don't have many. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's.

    Many thanks for the hours of organization and attention to details. I rode through territory I hunted in with my Dad 50 years ago: what a Fathers' Day treat....

    You have to host them somewhere and link them. I suggest SMUGMUG.COM, it is $40/year for unlimited photos.
