DZEE DUAL SPORT DETAILS

D Introduction
We have been riding the back-roads and trails of the Lytton - Cash Creek area for many years, and it is one of my favorites. This area is home to the Monkey Wrench Cross Country, Onion Lake riding area, one of the most famous riding areas in Canada, if not the world. It is stewarded by the West Coast Dirt Riders who host the famous Monkey-wrench cross-country enduro race every Canada Day / July 1st Long Weekend.

The DZEE ride will be a learning process for DSBC to use the Rally Navigator software with the hopes of creating an easy way of hosting Dual Sport Events and possibly a Rally in the near future. Yes you all will be my guinea pigs to help us learn this software, all while riding one of the nicest areas in BC. You are not going to be the first as we already did the Loose Screw C Route with the Rally Navigator software and it was a success.

There is no direct cost other than be a paid member of DSBC, this serves two main purposes, one is to help keep the coffers of DSBC loaded with cash, but more importantly provides me, the other organizers and the DSBC directors with a bit of insurance. Membership without BCORMA Trail Pass is only 30 bucks per year, but I always recommend the BCORMA trail pass as a few bucks will work its way to the guys that keep this area rideable.

Make sure you understand what what this weekend will be all about before committing. Please dont sign up if you cant make it as there is a very limited amount of spaces for riders, we are looking for intermediate level riders (this is not for hard core expert, A, dirt bikers) As long as you have your gravel road skills mastered you will like this ride, but be prepared there may be some short sections that may be rutted, muddy and you might drop your bike more than once. If you dont drop your bike on the first day you will be welcome to join in for some really challenging stuff on the second day.
If you have read this far then lets keep reading and get you signed up.
