    I am asking for a show of interest from members interested in multi day overland trips. I understand some peeps have been asking and i am looking to see the level of interest in order to see what possibilities this season might bring.

    I am also seeking some ride and support leaders that can help put this plans into action. Please message me if you are interested. Must be flexible and able to ride minimum 2 days at a time. Its our club guys.. We should all step up and do what we can to keep things moving.

    GPS and communication devices will be available to ride leaders on request.

    This is great! Thanks for kicking it off. I am not sure I can make this year pan out but I will definitely keep an eye on it. I think putting together some multi day trips is a great idea to breathe some freshness into the group. Lots of fantastic ground to cover over a long weekend.

    To be safe...Moderate.... Nothing to technical...Logging roads, Motorized trails....Rural Back roads.. Concept is to give members the experience of traveling and sharing experiences..Trips...Bike talk..Places been...Improve safe riding skills etc.

    I should add that this is not for fair weather riders. We will get wet... We will get hot... We will help some peeps i know pick up their bikes.... we will get dirty...yet..Think of all the camp fires and the cheap motels...

    Can't wait lol.

    I am encouraged inmates.... I am hoping you will help make this work. I am hoping to get together a Zoom video/Audio conversation going. So far i have the blessings from the club's execs to explore possibilities. I will like to have formalised somewhat what our ultimate proposal will be to the club. This will depend on the outcome of our conversations.

    I am proposing Sunday 21st March 2021 7.pm for this conversation. I will send everybody the connection details. Please let me know your email address via private conversation if you wish to attend.

    We will coordinate dates via that channel. Thank you all for helping move this possibility forward. Kind regards.

    I'm not as technically proficient as some on here with my GPS mapping etc, but if you need someone to scope out trails in the North Bay area I'd be happy to help. Tons of logging roads/rail beds /trails and messes to get into up here. If there is something in this area you are curious about give me a shout and I'll go have a look. If not I'd love to join a group for some rides, Last year was a bit of a bust.
