Doing the Duffy Lake Road loop on Monday, August 26

I just got a 2003 Vee recently and I'd like to stretch its legs a bit. Going to do the Vancouver-Pemberton-Lillooet-Hope-Vancouver loop this Monday, August 26 (I'm on vacation). Anyone else interested in joining me?

I'm a 43-year-old with 20-plus years of riding experience. The pace will be brisk but sensible, with some lunch and photo breaks.

Hit me up here if you're interested.

Cheers!

Fitz

interested, yes of course

I love that road, I rode it twice last summer. But I'm home right now in Kingston Ontario. Enjoy it for me.

Wink Other side

Get across the river and ride the backroads on the reserve up across the Pemberton Meadows. I hear they replaced the cable car with a bridge at Boston Bar. Where's the fun in that?

[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]K7 Wee, rebuilt like new and then some after collision with deer and mildly farkled.

Just got home. Really nice day for a ride! I saw another rider on an identical yellow Vee and someone on a GS coming the other way somewhere around Lillooet. Hope you had a great day too!

Started with the obligatory picture of the Chief in Suquamish.

The scenery was pretty spectacular throughout, but especially so between Pemberton and Lillooet.

Lillooet to Lytton was ridiculously gusty. I was getting buffeted all over the road.

Started to rain once I hit Hope. Thankfully the heated grips were up to the task.
