International Female Ride Day - Vancouver 2018

The Vancouver meet-up on International Female Ride Day went off without a hitch. 100 women showed up to the Trev Deeley Harley Davidson on Saturday morning to celebrate and ride for the yearly event. 

We hung out, drank coffee, and won some prizes before taking off on a group ride to Deep Cove. Over 100 motorcycles took over the Dollarton Highway and then the cul-de-sec right down on the ocean side in Deep Cove. The turnout was so amazing and the sun was out and warm.

The first time I hosted the Vancouver meet-up of IFRD, 4 ladies showed up and each year since, the attendance has doubled.

It makes me so stoked to ride next to these local ladies every year on this day. HOG is covering the story for their magazine (keep an eye out!) and CBC did a write up on their website. See it HERE.

Day at the Dunes

The Richmond dunes is a huge chunk of land in the Vancouver outskirts used for dirt dumping from local construction and mill sites. We use it to throw our bikes around. It's always changing and there's always a ton of different types of dirt biking going on here. Every sunny Sunday, Mitch Kirilo, Matt Savage and a bunch of his buds go out and rip around on their dirt bikes. It's starting to get pretty frosty out there but when you drop your bike in the sand and have to pick it up a million times, it starts feeling like the middle of summer.

Highnoon Scramble recap by Wendy Dyk

"The High Noon Scramble: a 9 lap racecourse of sand-pit hell (hell as in- this is actually fucking awesome). A race which includes a gnarly hill climb, tight thorny bush trails, and a deep sandy hip jump (which claimed a victim or two) put on once a year by the Filth Mode crew down at the big ol' Richmond sand pits at the end of #8 Road. People show up in full-on costume and put on their best faces right before hitting the course with full attempt in finishing, until about the 6th lap when either their bike won't start or they realize how fucking tired they actually are."
