The Spring Ride and Social was instigated in 2007 by Dwight and Pat Harris to get the riding season off to a good start and to polish up rusty riding skills. It was a chance to renew accquaintances with fellow Club Members and socialize over dinner after the winter hiatus.

2016 GVMC Spring Run
It was an overcast sky that greeted everyone as they arrived at the clubhouse. The coffee was on and there was muffins and cinnamon buns to nibble on while waiting for the run to start. In the meantime everyone had their picture taken with their bikes and mileages were recorded for the combined mileage challenge.
Route sheets were passed out and after a short riders meeting 34 bikes and 9 passengers hit the road for a 3-4 hr ride through the southern area of the lower mainland.
When they returned to the clubhouse they were given a short quiz on things that they passed,rode on,rode under,etc. If they were observant they would have noticed that the club's Michellin Man was holding all the answers, including some wrong ones. After adding up scores and drawing cards for tie breakers, we managed to come up with 3 winners for riders and 3 more for passengers, as well as a 50/50 winner.
Winners: 1st Place Rider: Dwight Harris 2nd Place Rider: Bob Vickers 3rd Place Rider: Ron Gaudette
1st Place Passenger: Lena Stern 2nd Place Passenger: Virginia Billing 3rd Place Passenger: Pat Harris
Everyone enjoyed a meal of chilli,salad,buns, and a homemade dessert that couldn't be beat! All in all it was a great day and the sun even came out for a while.
Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting this event. You can see your picture in our photo gallery. See you next year. Cheers, Phil
