Manxman & dr650bc present BC Big Trailie Ride 2 !!!! Perfect weather and the great riders who joined us on made last year’s BC Big Trailie Ride better than we expected. We had so much fun that we would like to host another ride this year. Although everyone is welcome, this year’s route is once again designed for the big dual sports like GS’S & V-Strom’s Etc. The route is different from last years in that it stays mostly in the Okanagan region of southern BC and takes in the best scenic backroads the area has to offer. Friday, June 22, 2007 Starting out from the Super 8 Motel (250- 378-9422) in Merritt, we will head south through Brookmere, Tulameen, and Coalmont to Princeton. We then follow the KVR( Kettle Valley Railway) route to Summerland & on to Oliver where we will stay at the Southwind Motor Inn ( 250-498-3442) Saturday, June 23, 2007 Leaving EARLY will avoid the slowpokes and allow a bit of fun. From Osoyoos, we ascend Anarchist Mountain – some of BC’s best climbing curves. At Bridesville, a little detour takes us to Rock Creek. Just past Westbridge, we take a series of KVR trails & back roads to Kelowna. From Kelowna, the route over the KVR to Chute Lake and down to Penticton (GOOD NEWS - rooms available at Log Cabin Motel 1-800-342-5678) Sunday, June 24, 2007 Following a select combination of back roads to Keremeos, its time to tackle the infamous “GOAT TRAIL” on the way up to Apex Alpine Ski Resort. Don’t worry, there is an alternate, paved bypass of this section that is verrrry fun!!!! From Apex, we will head down the “Corkscrew” road aka the Nickleplate or maybe we should call it the “Stelvio” of dirt!!!! and on to Princeton. This will be a good spot for lunch and to reflect on the great riding before we all head for home.
