Edit: I would like a confirmation for those names on the list and also what day you will show up: Wed, Thu or on Friday... If anyone interested is riding up on Wed or Thurs I could meet them in Cambell River and do a more entertaining backroad loop up to the campsite...

For this year I am looking at setting up on Wednesday evening July 21st for those that want to come up early... You'll be able ride on Thu-Fri before the bigger group shows up later Friday July 23rd... It will be a similar format to last years ride but with some different routes thrown in to keep it interesting... Pack up day will be Sunday July 25th..

Fees: This year the NI Ride will be a DSBC official event and will have a rider sign up fee of $5 that will go to maintaining this site...

Last years link:

Most of the riding will be bigger Adventure bike friendly- C routes with optional B stuff.... We have enough local riders that can act as guides to keep the groups smaller {less dust} for those that are happy to tag along and not have to navigate... I once again can pass along some area route maps for those that want to break off in their own groups to explore... Last year some of the more hardcore riders on the smaller DS bikes chose to venture off into the blue {more difficult} areas on the map to ride....

Pre Ride Link:

Those with GPS's- If you PM me your E-mail address I can send you some routes to download....

Bikes and Fuel:
The bikes you bring must be STREET LEGAL INSURED dual sport types... A fuel cell range of 200 KM is recommended to take in some of the longer routes.... The closest fuel/food/store is in Woss about 30KM from camp so you may want to top up on the way by...

Camping and other activities: Once again we will set up on Anutz Lake with the alternate being Atluck Lake if Anutz is full.... Unless you want to travel to Woss for meals, it is recommended you be self sufficient with meals and camp supplies.... The campsite has a fair amount of room for campers and trailers to set up and outhouse bathrooms.... With everyone swimming in it I recommend to boil or filter the lakewater before drinking it....
The lake is great for canoeing, swimming and beginner sailboarding.... Nimpkish Lake {the next one downstream} is a famous mecca for windsurfers.... There are some caves and karst formation close by as well....

Campsite Map:

Option A Anutz lake: Take HWY 19 North From Cambell River {approx 1hr 40 min} to the Zeballos cutoff... Take the Zeballos road for about 2 KM and you will see the Anutz Lake sign to turn right... Stay on this road until you see the Anutz Rec area sign and then turn left and down to the lake...

Option B Atluck Lake: Instead of turning at the Anutz cutoff continue on the Zeballos road for another 4 KM {+-} until you reach a y junction with signage... Take the right fork for about 2 KM and it will take you to Atluck campsite at the bottom of the lake....

We will put a DSBC arrow up at the Anutz cutoff directing you to which of the 2 campsites we will be using....


The road in is highlighed in red turn left off hwy19 just opposite the steele main...
