I went last weekend, and now I got the bug…somewhat late in the season. If anyone is going on either Sat or Sunday for the day, any way I can catch a ride? I live in N Van, but can get to wherevers good to meet, and I won't be taking a bike - I'll give you like $30-40 for gas?

Edit - turns out it's $120! Still up for a ride if anyone picks this up, for a little bit less money…given the alternative, I'll stretch to 50 bucks for gas?

Greyhound is much cheaper. ~ $20 one way.

I'm expecting to go up for the day on Sunday, leaving from downtown. I will know for sure around Friday, just depending on weather and whether I am getting destroyed on Saturday night. Send me a PM towards Friday if you still need a ride.

I'm aiming to go up early on Saturday and coming back down at end of day. Probably again the following weekend too…

This sounds like pretty much every weekend this summer, although usually I find the motivation to ride anyway…

Cheers guys - sorted it with Epicrides - $25 - seems like a pretty good deal.

Craw, do you know if you're heading up next weekend again? Despite feeling like I've had the shit kicked out of me today I wanna make one more trip before winter, and Epicrides is off next week. Let me know!

:high:

Cheers
