Excellent.

As WJM will attest, there is more than one road in the area with the same or similar name, which confused our lunch caterer in 2008.

By the time he figured out the errorhe got to the lunch stop almost an hour late and missed 20-30 of the riders. As a small business owner serving our event all the way from Kamloops, we can assume that the error caused him huge grief...

We are clear on the location of the lunch stop this year and Horty has assured us that he will be there and set-up intime for the fastest riders with hot food and plenty of cold bevvies.

I am planning to ride up to the Dead Zone this year and looking for some that would like to ride up with me.

The plan is to go up east Harrison to Nahatlatch RD then the west side of the Fraser to Lytton and take the ferry across. Gas up and take HWY 1 for the last 40 KMs.

I am planning to leave the Vancouver area on Friday July 3[suP]rd[/suP] in the morning.

For the return trip I was thinking of going through Lillooet, and Seton Portage to D’Arcy, Mount Currey and Harrison East on Sunday.

Please PM me if you would be interested in join up for one or both of the legs.

Any news on when the rollmap will be available?

Judy has been working on the 'EZ' rollchart and Tom on the 'HARD' chart.

An incredible amount of work (and wine consumption)...

We haven't finalized the delivery method (email the charts or email you a password to download the charts off the site).

I would expect that you should see something in your inbox on Sunday June 28th.

just wondering whats available in spences bridge for services, ie, food and bevies?

Firstly, please stay tuned to this section for info on what WE will have available for you (WE have Friday night, Saturday brekkie, trail lunch and dinner covered + beer on-site).

The 'PackingHouse Pantry & Cafe' offers terrifice coffee, pie, breakfasts & lunches and is about 500m from our campground. They also have a basic convenience store...

The 'Logcabin Pub' has a little bit of food on the menu and offers off-sales.

Not much else in the little town. NO GAS. So your last fill-up would be Lytton, Cache Creek or Merrit.
