This event will be conducted in the Vancouver Island Gold River region and will give attendees the opportunity to experience the awesome beauty of the mountains, lakes, rivers, ocean and forest of the area.
Besides the traditional Meet ‘n’ Greet on Friday evening, we have planned a Pancake Breakfast for Saturday morning, four simultaneously conducted group rides for Saturday afternoon/evening, and a repeat of these four rides on Sunday. This will provide weekend participants with the opportunity to experience all the beauty that the area has to offer.
North Island 1000
To supplement a great weekend of riding, the MIATVC will be conducting several group rides of the North Island 1000 on the weekdays following the weekend event. These rides will cover 1000 kilometers of the north end of Vancouver Island while visiting 10 communities and taking 6 days to complete. Definitely, a ride to remember! (Due to limitations on camping/accommodation facilities on this ride, participation may have to be limited/controlled.)
Registration will begin soon! Members of ATVBC get early registration access to the conference. Members of ATVBC and the Mid-Island ATV Club get early registration access for the North Island 1000 ride. Join ATVBC and a club today!
Pre-registration will open on May 1 and is open to all members of ATVBC Island club members. Non-ATVBC member registration will open on May 15th.
Registration for participation in a North Island 1000 serial (ride) will be conducted separately from registration for the weekend event.
