On Sunday, June 28, the hottest day of the summer, the Arrow Lakes ATV Club hosted a ride to Rosebery and back to Nakusp on the rail trail. There were ATVs, side-by-sides and dirt bikes on the ride. Twenty-eight riders, ranging in age from 8 to 80+ took part in this event. Despite the heat and dust, the riders managed to stay relatively comfortable with a nice breeze and many shady spots along the way. Although one machine needed to be winched back onto the trail, everyone arrived safe and sound at the home of Gerry and Mario Fox in Summit Lake.
Terry Wardrop, Land and Environment Co-ordinator of ATVBC, gave a brief talk about riding and trails. This was followed by a question and answer period with very active participation by those in attendance. A wiener roast, provided by Gerry and Mario Fox, was enjoyed by the 33 people who attended.
