    Lots of good roads and dirt riding around Vernon. Take Westside Rd and head south towards Kelowna. A few logging roads here and there to explore. Once you hit Bear Lake Main, take it and go crazy. No end to it.

    An other option would be Highway #6, stop at the Gold Pan for breacky. It is a few klics past Cherryville. Ride #6 till the twistys blow your mind then rip up any gravel road you see. You will find snow higher up . Take the Crieton [sp?] valley rd on the way back. Stop at Echo lk. and yell " I'm moving"
    Watch for cows and deer on #6

    What days are you going to be in Vernon. I am good to go for a ride Fri or Sat. Sunday is busy and I am back to work on Monday.

    I ride a KTM 950

    Let me know if you want to go for a ride
