Northern Rockies National Road Run

Don, Gail, their daughter LeAnne, Shannon and I represented OTC at the National Road Run hosted by members of the Northern Rockies Chapter in Kaslo BC. Don hauled my Chief up which allowed Shannon and I ride our Harleys. Needless to say, it was a nice ride.

Oregon Trail Chapter September 2012 Shannon and I arrived Thursday evening, checked in and enjoyed lunch at the Brew Pub located downstairs in the Kaslo Hotel. The view of Kootenay Lake from the hotel was extraordinary.

Kootenay Lake

Thursday evening we enjoyed Greek food catered in the park by the lake. The food was wonderful and gave everyone an opportunity to introduce themselves and catch up on old times.

One of several waterfalls along HWY 31

After our return to Kaslo, we met up with Don, Gail and LeAnne. We were enjoying local beverages on the patio when storm clouds began to roll in from the south. After a short while, the storm arrived and we retreated into our room. Lots of lighting, thunder and rain followed. In the end, the bikes were all wet and several towns along the lake had lost power, Kaslo included.

Greek food at the park

Friday morning we assembled at a nearby park for a southern loop following the roads Shannon and I rode in on. Instead of retracing our ride from the day before, we decided to run the route in reverse to see new country. We headed northwest to New Denver. We were able to avoid the showers Friday and had an enjoyable days ride on an excellent road following a stream with no traffic. Along the way we saw several falls like the one pictured next. We were told the area had received record rainfall over the spring. All the lakes, rivers and streams were running high and fast.

Evening bike wash. Bring your own rags.

The staff at the Kaslo Hotel was somewhat prepared and was able to power the cash registers, taps and serve a limited menu for dinner with power generated by a car parked out back. We ate our fill and all survived the night with the help of LED lanterns provided in each room.

Oregon Trail Chapter September 2012 Come Saturday morning, the Sun was out, but unfortunately, so was the power. Zombies walked the streets in search of coffee. Most discovered the service station had a generator and was running their coffee machine full out. The line was peaceful. I did run into the hotel manager getting her cup. I bet theyll be better prepared next time. Saturdays 160-mile ride made a big loop north and east through New Denver, Nakusp and Upper Arrow Lake, around Trout Lake, then south back to Kaslo. Shannon and I decided breakfast in New Denver sounded like a good idea, so off we went. We enjoyed a second chance to ride through the canyon and soak up the scenery. The water in the stream was still very cold and the difference in air temperature produced a fog that hung just a few feet above the stream. . Along the way, Joe Stark lay in wait at a stream crossing. All the photos in this story were shot by Joe. Id like to thank him for letting me share them with you. Joe thought wed all like a picture of ourselves riding. Here are Shannon and I on our way to New Denver.
Don heading out for a day in the wind

Joe also caught us in the parking lot as we left on Friday. Heres Don as he left:

Following the ride, we all returned to the hotel for Saturdays awards banquet. The oldest rider award was handed out, but the winner decided since he had rode a modern bike, Don should receive the award. So Don got a quart of oil and the well wishes of all in attendance. The hotel staff had prepared dinner on BBQs as power wasnt restored until we had lined up to fill our plates with excellent BBQ. Great work under difficult circumstances.

The riders assemble for a group photo

Again, Id like to thank Joe Stark for sharing his photos with us and all the Northern Rockies Chapter members who volunteered their time to make this event memorable.
