It was a great first experience. Thanks to the organizers for putting it on.

I never got a chance to thank the guys that helped me get my bike up and out.

Can anyone recommend some map books that have rides like the EZ route for C Riders?

At breakfast someone mentionned a BC Backwoods Map book - is that right?

Another fantastic DSBC event :clap: :clap: :clap: Big props to the Christian Motorcyclists Association (I hope I got that right) for a great breakfast -- thank you!

Thanks to Neil for helping me turn my bike around on the A-route --it turned out to be a huge mistake on my part leaving a brand new rear tire at home & thinking I could squeeze one more ride outa my old tire -- huuuuuge mistake!No way I could climb those hills :shock:

It gotta tell you guys, no matter how many times I ride with others I always find myself lost, off the marked trail, & riding alone in no time flat. It's like I have a special knack for doing this, I dunno...

I didn't stop for too many pics but I did see some of you guys with working your cameras & camcorders,so please post up!

I can relate. I tried to turn left off the start! Then missed second turn.:(

Great riding with you guys today! Thanks Tom. I had a lot of fun and going over Church Mtn in reverse was a great way to end the day.

I could have used afresherrear tire quite a few times!

What a day!!! Despite the downpour of the previous day that caused the Vedder to rise 2', many riders showed up for the 5th Annual Fall Newbie Ride and Social :clap:

At the Riders' Meeting I counted 85 people, so I think it would be safe to say we had over 90 riders.

Many thanks to Mark who organized this event. Everything from arranging breakfast, lunch and the demo rides from our sponsors. Everything ran very smoothly.Thanks Mark :tup:

Big Thanks to Tom and everyone who helped him get the trails cleared and marked. They spent a few weekends up on Church Mtn. getting everything ready.

Once again the Christian Motorcycle Association provided us with a top-notch breakfast. If you are ever planning a large event and need someone to cook for you please contact them. They are a fantastic group!!

BIG TOP POWERSPORTS, one of our new DualSportBC sponsors, provided a great lunch stop. Thank you very much for being there. :woohoo:

Of course everyone saw or spoke with Roland from Western Powersports at the lunch stop. Always a happy, energetic person. A great long-time sponsor of DSBC. Thanks for the info on your up-coming sale.

Also, it was great to have Pacific Yamaha BMW at the start/finish area. They once again brought lots of people, bikes and support. Their demo rides were once again a very popular part of the Newbie Ride. Thanks Brian and everyone for your continued support of DSBC :dr:

Thanks to Neil and Wally for leading the "A" riders thru some very challenging trails along with John and Mike who helped along the way (Ray K owes you guys big time for getting that 950 back on the trails heh heh heh heh).

Thanks to Mike and Walt for leading the "B" riders around Church Mountain and over to Chipmunk Creek. And Scott who made sure no one got left behind.

It was fantastic to have all the usual people helpingout where they could on the trails. You know who you are and you offer to help all the time. Thank you.

Here are a few of myphotos:
