Nickle Plate Mine ride

Just went for a great ride on Saturday, me on the Scrambler, my step son on the DR. Just logging roads but it was a blast on the Scrambler, it handles very well. :deal :clap

Home to Penticton, BC, Green Mountain Rd, Apex Mountain Rd, Nickle Plate Rd to Hedley and back home again.



Goal for the day, the Nickle Plate Mine


lots of well groomed gravel roads, we set a nice pace and just enjoyed the views

I'm lovin our new riding area.

Sorry, we only stopped once for photo ops. I wanted to see if the young guy could keep up. He was complaining at supper, "my body aches". And of course so did mine but couldn't let on.

Hope you had a good visit the other canadian.

Most excellent.
my dad way spent riding back from Dave's. Probably the best ride I'vehad all year. Hwy#3 was in prime shape and treated us very well.

Good to see you guys had fun as well.
