I just wanted to make a post and introduce myself. I'm a new rider in Smithers. I am hoping to do a lot of touring around the area. I typically tour in my Jeep and have done most of the trails in the area in it, but it's big and getting pricey on gas. The bike should be able to cover many more miles for far less. I would like to get out for a ride this Saturday if anyone else would like to join, please let me know. What are some good early season routes? I know Silvern lakes still has snow after the first switch back. <br><br>Thanks and I look forward to meeting some fellow riders in the area.
