2019 Poker Run Chemainus, BC
Some Photos from our recent Poker Run held between Ladysmith -Chemainus -Ladysmith June 16th-2019 After a short ride on road from the Ladysmith McDonalds we found the access to a 20 km or so Trail that has recently been completed. Even the Trail Gates were not too bad for trikes with only a couple of spots posing a problem for Rick with his Fat Trike. The nice thing about this trail is it includes short downhill sections, sharp turns & a few surprises around each corner or tree stump. Definitely kept you on your toes and was a very nice ride. Most members took part in the Poker Run/Scavenger hunt & Jane ended up with the best Poker Hand & won the prizes. Some people advised me that they found the clues a little obscure while others were easy. We ended up at a nice little restaurant before the return trip back to our cars & the weather was perfect. Special thanks to the Store Owners who were kind enough to take time out of their busy days to act as 'Dealer' for our group & let us pick out our cards.
