We'd like to thank Santa Cruz bicycles for generously donating the 1st hand main prize again this year of a RESERVE CARBON WHEELSET!
Also important to note that, as last year, we have removed the Old Glory Wild Card option. Why? Because we felt it necessary as with such a spectacular first prize we wanted to keep things on a more even playing field and not have everyone and their mother out there on Glory and late for the BBQ.
The basic information is that the Poker Ride is a non-competitive group ride on the Seven Summits trail on Sunday Sept 1st. It is run under the umbrella of our local and heroic trail society the KCTS and as such, all participants need to be a current member. Annual membership is only $10 and the cost for the Poker ride is $50 cash upon arrival at the trailhead. There will be shuttles by Kootenay Mountain Shuttle running from 7:30 am to 8:30 am on demand. The ride consists of a strenuous expert level mountain bike trail through remote mountainous backcountry. You are required to be a fit, experienced rider with an adequate bike and you are expected to be self sufficient. You are also expected to have fun!
We hope to see you there!
