Sorry, but no pics. Hopefully Dan's video will show up eventually.

The "B" was the best ever. A BIG THANKS to all who made it happen and sign me up for next year.

Well I only had time & energy for pics at four spots this year.:( But that is my only complaint. Great ride guys!!:clap:

We stopped for water and snacks a few times.


We did a sweet climb along a fence line. I was pretty tired at the 2km mark but it just kept going. Here we are getting out onto the FSR.



I guess it was too dark on Trevor's trail for pics but it was quite the decent.



We got up near Sun Peaks and the flowers were out. I had to get a few pics.



Are those BMW colors?





It took us a bit of effort to get up onto Mutiny Hill as we were about 175kms into the ride now. The view was worth it!

if I had of known there was an evil eye hovering over me I might've, eased up on the hooch a little on thurs night. (but didn't, ooooh my head)


some of your trail designers, Reid, Doug, Terry, Gord.

Glen Labby, even his wiskers are orange


Floyd and the gang stayed properly hydrated on their ride

the DSBC gang and their cache of a dozen or so bikes, some were even so spoiled as to have 2 bikes there, not that (guy) I can (guy) remember his (guy) name.


a seriously messed up pana. pic. apre ride.


were you there for the raffle draw?




and that, quite literally is all there is, as my camera has gone on a permanent vacation and refuses to focus any more, thanks to all for attending the 2011 LSDS.

I was the navigator in the group that you found/found you, wandering around in the Hundred Acre Wood ( quote from winnie the poo ). You had us a little concerned when you dissapeared, we waited and looked for you to no avail. "Well he was lost when he found us, now he's lost again, let's carry on." Glad it all worked out and you got to ride on Sunday and retrieve your Spot.

Scott and crew

Many many thanks to DSBC and everyone who helped put this event together.:clap: It was my first run and I had such a great time. Fantastic views, new friends and bike dump #4 (see goofy pic at beginning of Route C thread-thanks farmerger for the hand!). I appreciated how friendly and welcoming people were.

Unfortunately, I killed my camera at the beginning of the day :mad:, but was able to squeeze out a few pics on a dying cell phone.

LOL, classic. The tracks that go around the puddles are usually a good place to start Jenn! I am glad you had a good adventure, see you next year.

She's a pretty good sport, as is my own significant other.....who also enjoyed some boot-fillin time wrestling her bike upright and out of a rather 'deepish' puddle this past weekend.

B Route ...

B Route ...

Usually I enjoy taking lots of pictures. But I really admit that I was having waaaaay too much fun on this ride to focus on using the camera.

I was a late comer to this ride, and I am really glad I was able to attend. I look forward to attending next year. Thanks to all that make this ride possible.

Now ... photos.


Stopped close to the road for a little break:

Another angle:

One of many steep rocky sections. This is steeper than it looks. :)

A small creek and a clearing provided shade for a nice spot to rest.

Checking the trail ahead...

A short vid of the sand hill that did my bike in for this ride (Got sand stuck in behind the sprocket - we freed this on the trail by taking the rear tire off, but we voted to turn around not trusting if something else could be wrong).

Another short vid on our way out ... nearing the asphalt road.
