NYE epic ride 2017

January 9th, 2018

And another year is in the books, wrapped up by an epic snowy excursion through roads and forest to wind our way into 2018. The annual NYE day ride was building up to be a proper nasty one with dumps of snow a few days prior. And on the day, the sun shined, the snow sparkled, the ice had a glossy finish, and you couldn’t wipe the smile off of our faces. Happy New Year! Big thanks to all the Quadra Islanders that helped to make this event happen, all the cars that put up with 50+ bikes sliding around on the ice and snow, the snacks by locals, the support vehicles for the north and south ends, the fire at the beach, the food at the hall, the beer in our bellies, the swim at midnight (for 2). A Great Big Huge thanks to our sponsors for this year’s NYE Epic bike ride!! Beach Fire Brewing and Nosh House​, Tsa-Kwa-Luten Lodge Resort, Taku Resort, and the Heriot Bay Inn !!! We appreciate it! Terry McKall did a beauty write up for Canadian Cycling Magazine about visiting the shop, prepping for the Type 2 fun we were about embark upon.
