    Depending on what the planned ride ends up being, I could be interested in riding over, but I was waiting to see whether its street or dirt...lol. It's a long ride on an old XT350! Currently street riding, but we will see what's shaking by late May.

    End of May might be to early for a loop over the mountains (snow).have to wait and see, but I dont mind getting turned around if we make a gallant effort but dont make it There may be other options than what I was thinking. ?? Street or dirt i am in .For street guys it 12 km on a good gravel road to my place

    I was up to Ymir yesterday in a cool drizzle. Lots of snow about. Bike is a bit dirty again. Bit good riding and bit over 200km.

    Given this is ADV. I think off-road is the way to go. But, I will offer a loop of road if anyone’s interested and also happy to show the way to devildogg’s secret lair.

    Dean. If you are coming you are welcome to stay here.

    devidogg and I chatted yesterday. He can host BBQ sausages and camping at his cabin.
    There Will be two rides. One pavement and one off road. So much of the off-road depends on snow melt. The road ride to Kaslo for lunch.
    Bring sausages and beverages of choice we will supply salads and other for a small price.
    Lots of tenting space. Lots of beach.

    The Wurst Rally Evar .... is a go! May 25th on Arrow Lake.

    Is the destination on the Arrow from the Nakusp area or the south end? Looks like I’m in for the what ever the off-road ride may be but will have to head home at the end of the day....

    Yup. The Castlegar side. About 16 km above Scottie’s Marina or about 20 above the Keenlyside Dam

    The road is gravel but easy even on a road bike provided you aren’t drifting corners lol

    Ok perfect. Shorter trip for me! I may have to enter some of my home made sausages for the judging though even though I can’t stay to participate...

    I'm provisionally in, but with our newly-elected provincial government I've heard I'll be so busy getting rich that I won't have time for holidays!
