    I'm planning on doing the Big Trailie ride in June and was thinking about adding a ride up to the Chilcotin area after that. On that note I would like to know who has ridden 'The Hill'...it looks like a blast.

    I took a trip to Bella Coola on a LC4 640. The "hill" was everything I heard it was. Steep, long, and twisty. Great Fun

    Just a note: When we were on the ferry and we stopped at Bella Bella and Shearwater, we asked if we could take the bikes off of the ferry and do a little bit of exploring. They said "sure, no problem" as long as we were back on the ferry before they left. They said they would toot the horn 1/2 hour before they left.
    Here is a picture of a short stretch of pavement in Bella Bella.
    This trip sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun.

    Thanks for the info Canadasax, we will be sure to do that. Are there any roads in Ocean Falls? I think we have 3 hours there.:thumb
