& Ryk had done Jerry & Dave's Mexico to Canada ride and were now
looking to continue their journey into Canada. They decided our Across
British Columbia Tour would be the challenge for them. They set the wheels
in motion by sending in their deposits back in March and began spreading
the word to their friends. There were so many guys interested in this
ride, everyone wanted to go. However, by August they were either too busy
or for one reason or another unable to join us. Dan & Ryk had their
holidays confirmed and their hearts set on this ride; we decided to go
for it anyway.
I arranged for my
friends Mike, Rick and a few other guys touring to Bella Coola to meet
up with us along the way. Ryan was delegated to the support vehicle, an
adventure in itself. We departed Cranbrook on August 28th, our mission
- 12 days and 3,500 KM "Across British Columbia" crossing at
least five rugged mountain ranges to Bella Coola on the most remote backroads
we could find. A cool ferry trip then looping back through Radium Hot
Springs, ending with a ride through the Rockies to Cranbrook.
Some things went well
- awesome rides through beautiful scenery, excellent hospitality and meals
at unique accommodations. Some things not so well - we had some very interesting
navigation challenges and some late night arrivals, once on gasoline fumes
- but, we made it every time! Some things went bad - Dan broke his finger,
that was very unfortunate - he put so much work into preparing for this
ride! We hope to see him back to complete the mission.
just can't tell the story! This trip really is adventure; a truly awesome
