Mt Muir via Ranger Lake, with Luke and Brendon – 2016/12/04

Here’s a first, I did the video before the blog entry. “Struggle” is the word of the day. A fine ride, we rode our butts off and had a blast. (Broken GPX track due the GPS taking a swim.)

Ride with the face book folks… (DRZ) 2016/11/20

I better write this up before I forget the details, some memories do NOT last: running out of gas before getting to the rendezvous, two sprained ankles. Some memories will last, a great ride, new friends, etc.

Rendezvous... 9:30 am in
Rendezvous… 9:30 am in “downtown” Shawnigan Lake.

Mt Wood, with Kory… and we found Josh and Roland
