2019 Wescaleros Rolling Rally - July 18 - 22

Announcing the 2019 Wescaleros/Vulcan Baggers Rolling Rally! Mark your calendars, schedule your vacation time and book your hotel rooms.
Call me lazy, but I’m organizing this ride for two groups; just a lot easier than trying to organize 2 separate rallies. I’m sure most riders don’t care what flag you ride under; we’re all just out to have a good time, ride some great roads, see old friends and make new ones!
Here is the itinerary:
• Thursday July 18 – Make your way to meet up with the others at Creston, BC
• Friday July 19 – Day trip in the Kootenays region. Ride the loop to Trail, Castlegar, Nelson and back to Creston via either the Salmo Pass or take the Balfour ferry across Kootenay Lake (your choice).
• Saturday July 20 – Head north on Hwy 3 to Kootenay Bay and take the ferry to Balfour. North on Hwy 31 to Kaslo, Hwy 31A to New Denver and then north on Hwy 6 to Nakusp. Approx. 6 hours riding time + ferry wait.
• Sunday July 21 – From Nakusp Hwy 6 to the Faurquier ferry, continue on Hwy 6 through Lumby to Vernon and then Hwy 97 and 97A to Salmon Arm. Approx 5 hours of riding time + ferry wait.
• Monday July 22 – Ride in the Salmon Arm area. Lomax has come up with a couple of great rides in the area.
• Tuesday July 23 – Say our goodbyes and head towards home.


The beauty of this format is that if you can’t make the full 5 days you can meet up with the group somewhere along the route, or head home early if you need to. The plan is to keep it as simple as possible; no official rally t-shirts, no wind-up dinner, no door prizes. Just a bunch of people who love to ride getting together.

This will not be your typical ride-in-formation or everybody-stay-grouped-together ride. We’ll split up into smaller groups but everyone is free to go at their own pace. If you like slammin’ the bike through the twisties (and there will be a lot of them on this route), go for it! If you want to stop for a picture or two, see something you want to explore or pull into a roadside tavern to wet your whistle, go ahead! We all know where to meet up for the night and if you don’t show up for dinner we’ll be making phone calls, checking texts and if you’re lucky we may even send out a search party!

Update May 8, 2019

RE: NAKUSP ACCOMODATIONS
I received a call last night from Sam at the Selkirk Inn. Apparently, there is a 3 day Bike Rally in Nakusp that weekend and they are booking up very quickly and have only a small number of rooms with 2 beds available. If your plan is to take in the Nakusp stopover on Saturday night and haven’t booked your room there yet, I would suggest that you get on it right away. 1-800-661-8007 or 250-265-3666

Anyone know of a place near Creston to rent a motorcycle for the rally? I'm currently ride-less. The nearest Eagle Riders is Seattle, not wanting to chance riding that far yet. Family will be in tow in the cage.

Rentals

Dave,
From what I could see nothing in Cranbrook which is the nearest major center to Creston. Looks like a couple places in Kelowna:

McScoots rents several types from a V-Strom up to an Indian Chieftain https://www.mcscoots.com/motorcycles

Gasoline Alley Harley https://www.gasolinealleyhdkelowna.c...arley-davidson

Count me in for the Creston section Al............I'll head back south Saturday and see a friend south of Yellowstone (his wife just passed). Hoping to see a bunch of folks there.

Lead, or follow, but just stay out of my way.
Heaven is a warm, cozy place to sleep.

Thanks Al & Gene, will look at those. I'm just trying to figure out how to do the "loop" to get the bike back. Crossing fingers something makes sense!

I'll be in for at least Creston so far. Looking forward to it!
