This event has been a tradition for the hardcore (and the hung over) for about 30 years. What better way to bring in the New Year, and show your commitment to the sport!
Due to the variable weather, the event is usually fairly short road ride, starting and ending at the clubhouse. Hot drinks and food are always served. Previous events have included dirt bikes running trailer plates in the snow; riders with “Happy New Year” party hats taped onto their helmets and blowing noisemakers; and a sidecar rig needing a push to get up the icy hill in back of the old clubhouse.
When the weather is fair, there are usually 20 or more riders. Dual sport bikes predominate when the roads turn to slush or were recently salted. Whatever the turnout, it is always a good time.

Well we did it again! Another perfect start to the year on two wheels for the brave, the fun and the little bit crazy, with the GVMC Annual New Year’s Day Ride.
Good weather, good roads and good people facilitated the clubs thirty year tradition of being the first and foremost on the road to mark the beginning of the year. Proving that motorcycling on the West Coast is year round for the dedicated and diehards.
A nice 2.5 Hour loop from the clubhouse bordering Langley, Surrey, White Rock and Delta with views of the mountains, ocean and Fraser River. Starting the day with a light breakfast and a challenging slalom course. ( mastered by Jim Sloat )
The two teams were off and riding at 11:30 am and returned at 2:00 pm for a hearty lunch and some friendly competition in the clubhouse. The black team prevailed victorious over the red team and took away the rewards with the overall top score going to Vern Billing. All in all a good turnout and a successful day, great motivation to start off 2018.
Thanks to everyone for turning out and helping make another great GVMC event possible.
