Ride Diary: 'Stoke the Fire

Thanks to all of you, last summer was a busy one at the shop and as September crept closer we were all in need of a little reward. What better way to do it than with a riding trip to Revy? Revelstoke, BC is one of my favorite places to ride - wet forest, loamy dirt, roots, rocks and steeps! Pretty much the opposite of the Okanagan and it’s only 3 hours from Kelowna. Most of our staff have ridden in Revy, but some hadn’t really explored the bigger rides or shuttle areas like Frisby/Ultimate Frisby, Martha Creek and Boulder Mountain. So, we booked some rides with Wandering Wheels, set up an Airbnb for the weekend and drove everybody out to the 'Stoke to shred, drink some beer, and eat all the food. And take pictures...lots of em...click on to see 'em.

These shred sessions are #FerdaGirls! New for the season, Sovereign’s Leigh Blackburn, with back up from Sabrina Gauthier, will be leading women’s group rides with an enduro focus. Starting in May, join us for advanced level rides at 5:30pm on Tuesday evenings at various locations in Kelowna and West Kelowna. Just like our co-ed rides, routes will be posted in advance on our Facebook page.

Wanna know more about Leigh and Sabrina? We thought so…

Ride Diary: Always Another Adventure

Still buzzing from our escapades in Derby, Tasmania our now, group of four, were moving on to the land of the Aotèaroa. This would not be a maiden voyage for any of us. It’s a place that we never seem to cross off our to-ride list; in New Zealand, there’s always another adventure. In fact, this was my fourth time visiting, and I’m sure that with my insatiable lust for life on two wheels, the growth of our sport, and the on-going construction of new trails, it will not be my last.
