Duffy loop ride

Post by McJeep »

Was just gonna email Mo on this but when I saw there were no new posts for 8 days I thought I better wake the room up ;)

Soooo how long a day is the loop ride that Mr Mo and the Bammer keep talkin bout? Is it a take the ferry over in the morn and home at night or a 2 day adventure for an island boy?

In my opinion, it's a long day...or two short ones to go from Vancouver and do the loop through the valley and back. It's not really that far but most from Lillooet to Pemberton is less than 60 km/hr. But I think Bam Bam used to do it in a coupla hours. :lol: :lol: :anxious: Anyway Lucy and I used to start out at Surrey, go up the valley and stay overnight in Lillooet...carry on the next day. That way we could enjoy the scenery. Definitely a premier ride...on par with New Denver area...maybe even a bit better, at least until you get to Whistler. JMHO WTFDIK :wink: :anxious:

Actually it's more like a 2 day ride the first time you do it. Something about if you go straight at MT. Currie and stay on the highway all the way to Birken you can over night there . PS: don't watch the real sweetie walk down the road ; watch for the road signs in Mt Currie you need to make a right hand turn there !

Hey Rob, I would recommend staying a night, slow down, make stops, have a swim, and enjoy the scenery. Take the Duffy to Lillooet then through Pavilion to Cache Creek, super scenic. Stay overnight in Cache Cr., and do the same ride back, avoid the Lower Mainland and upper levels traffic, you can't go wrong. :cool:
Check road conditions, the Duffy is an alpine pass and can be very snotty. I usually wait until May, even then you may pass through plowed avalanches. :shock:

Sounds like I need to do this - sometime later in the summer as I'm still physio'ing on the shoulder and not much strength back yet - have the mobility to ride but I don't think enough to do a day ride for a while yet

Will definitely be in touch here to set sumpthin up with y'all - nice easy lookit all the trees n hills type o ride - think I'll likely make it a 3 day or so thing so I have time to wewax ;) - no marathons for me anymore ;)
