I went to Lytton with all my DS buddies. Man that was an AWESOME ride. Too bad @Clayx, @baysam, or @Stoppie couldn’t make it. Too bad suckazz.
Here’s the pre-ride safety meeting
Shooting past former riding bud Clay’s house in the outskirts of Deroche. Sun is too far up, I am burning daylight.
Gas up in Lake Errock. The last of the 94 for this trip. Good thing I have the Gas Bag strapped on.
Top the the pass. It’s all downhill now. Kookipi is in terrible shape. Someone cut drainage channels across the road every 300 meters for about 14 kms. Hole to lump going down 90% of the time. Not as bad going up as you jump the hole.
Lytton Reaction ferry after the Kookipi and the West Fraser route. Some sweet riding in there with no pics.
Lytton stop for a bottle of H2O and an ice cream sandwich. It’s hot out at 1pm!! Nice.
Lunch break at 4km camp in Onion Lake. Single track starts now.
Trials, single track, you name it, I am all over it. I was the only one here on a beautiful Thursday afternoon.
Didn’t bring a chain saw. Damn. I got stopped at 1650 meters by too many downed trees. The 690 sure can climb. Just turn the throttle on and hang on.
Another trail, another jumble of downed trees. Good views up there though.
Added a little 91 octane for the ride home and off I go. 6 hours to Onion Lake. 5.5 hours home. Didn’t get home until 9:30pm and I said I would be home by dark. Opps.
