Come out and join the Revelstoke and Sicamous ATV clubs as they ride from point to point in an exciting and adventure-filled GPS ride on July 12 and 13, 2014.

The ride is designed with 75 different checkpoints spread throughout the Revelstoke and Sicamous area, and participants will use their GPS or map to make their way to these specific coordinates. At these locations, riders are instructed to take a photo and record a serial number specific to that checkpoint as proof of their ride.

While riding to 75 different coordinates in a matter of two days may seem like a daunting task, riders need not worry—they will only ride in hands of five points at a time, and can take part in as many or as few hands as they so choose.

If someone wants to partake in the ride but isn’t certain of how to follow GPS coordinates, there will be introductory sessions on GPS usage on Friday evening and first thing Saturday morning. With a straightforward walkthrough, the tutorial will ensure that everyone can try out this different kind of ATVing, regardless of previous knowledge.

Though prizes and awards are available to be won throughout the event, the clubs are really emphasizing that everyone should focus on enjoying the scenery and camaraderie of the ride, without worrying too much about the competition.

For more information on the event, visit the Revelstoke ATV Club website or contact Al Obrigewitsch at 250-814-4284 or [email protected].
