This was a great ride, we chased down the end of the mystery trail, which closes a loop, formed some ideas for restoring “big rock trail” to a loop, found another entrance to Muir which (at least currently) skips all the active logging…
Boring … 3+ hours to Campbell River and then back again …. NOT! It was supposed to be a routine ride up to visit David W to do an hours work on the bike (starter clutch) and return. Yeah! Didn’t work out like that LOL!
Bob wanted to get out for a ride, and the forecast looks to get worse for the rest of the week, and I have a new bike I’d like to ride, and there was a new track I wanted to explore, etc.
A Saturday bus-ride up to Campbell River, get the ownership/insurance sorted out, overnight at David’s, and follow David around the local backroads for 200+ km. Then ride back to Victoria.
After running into snow in a couple places with Daya yesterday, it seemed fairly clear that the only longish straight line ride in the Muir area would be west along the power-lines toward Fishboat Bay. Rob H and some of his friends (Trevor, Roger, Shawn (sp?)) had setup a ride for today, and invited me.
Weather forecast was great, bike was together, got up early and got breakfast out of the way … but none of the usual culprits were making noises about riding. Looked after some odds and ends, and when she finally appeared, I asked the youngest if she wanted to go for a ride…
Geoff wanted to get out for a “trail ride”, wasn’t an ideal day for me, but it was sunny and I skipped last weekend due to a newly cracked rib. .
