A gorgeous day in BC for a ride to Merritt, Logan Lake, Ashcroft, Boston Bar and home. 556km
We left Mcd’s in Langley on time with 4 riders, Cliff as leader, Glen, Ed, & Richard.
Richard rode only to Chilliwack, and we continued to Hope A&W as planned. and picked up 2 more riders.
Wayne and Grant joined the group, and we agreed to ride up the Coq at 110 to conserve gas 😉
The Coq had fewer trucks on a Sunday, and the construction locations were shut down for the weekend 😉
Fuelled up in Merritt as planned, took 97C up to Logan Lake. One of the best rides for bikers, as it had minimal traffic, sweeping turns, and great views of the valleys and ranch land area.
Very tempting to roll the throttle on, but better to just take in the sunshine and clean air.
Logan Lakes Maggs Park is a great spot to stop for bag lunch, has washrooms with flush toilets and a sink with paper towels.
Covered picnic benches and a kiddies water feature, which was entertaining. Great opportunity for spirited discussions.
Other bikers were enjoying the stop as well.
The ride up to Ashcroft on 97C continues to provide excellent asphalt, twist and turns, and the downhill run to Ashcroft provides great views of the canyon and river.
Hwy 1 south from Ashcroft had it’s usual wear and tear from the trucking traffic, with occasional rock falls to keep your attention on the road.
The Drive BC warning that the area between Spences Bridge and Litton would be limited to one lane with 20 minute delays, had cleared up by 2:00 pm when we travelled through.
Evidence of previous mud slides, off the hills in fire zones, will probably be a problem whenever we have heavy rains in the future.
Our final fuel stop in Boston Bar provided a brief opportunity to discuss individual preferences for routes back home.
An interesting mix of motorcycles, my 20 year old Karasaki Voyager, Eds 35 year old Goldwing special edition, Glenn’s 650 Suzuki V-Strom sport touring, Wayne’s Honda 750x DCT (Automatic) and Grant’s Harley Davidson.
A great ride, with great guys, all weathering well in these challenging times, but thankful for the camaraderie that motorcycles and the Langley Roadriders Club offers to all.
Thankful for Miles of Smiles for All.
