Attendance doubles for year two of Revy Riders TripleB rally

More than 40 women, plus their friends and families, came out for the second annual Revy Riders TripleB Rally on Saturday.

Pam Fetterer leads Tennille Barber and a group of female riders from Alberta Way through the 'Rock 45' feature on Rowland's Revenge — a 12-kilometre black diamond trail that's part of the Revy Riders trail network.

More than 40 women, plus their friends and families, came out for the second annual Revy Riders TripleB Rally on Saturday.

The event, hosted at Glacier House Resort, saw more than double the number of participants from the previous year as riders flocked to Revelstoke from as far away as Edmonton and Vancouver.

The day began with a yoga session hosted by Revelution Fitness before riders split up into groups ranging from beginner to advance and to hit the trails, with local club members leading the way through the 60-kilometre network.

A series of checkpoints were set up and points and prizes were awarded to those who hit up the most. The advanced group, led by Canadian moto champ Shelby Turner, tackled the 12 kilometre advanced trail Rowland’s Revenge filled with rocks, logs, roots, steep climbs and more. Beginners and intermediate riders had their own trails to have fun on. In between rides, the ladies went for a swim in Lake Revelstoke.

The Rider of the Year – based on checkpoint totals, a rider poll and best photo – went to Karina King, who spent the day on her 1985 Honda.
