CATERPILLAR UNVEILS FIRST UTVS
Some business (yawn) news about the ATV world……(snore)….
See this article about a Sudbury company who has the distribution rights to this “special” ATV!
Our Winter Ride left from Riding Stable Road with a group of 20 well dressed folks on a side-by-side and 18 quad bikes.
Most of the people there for the ride were members, but we were very glad to have along with us, a few non-members whom have said that they will be joining the club in the new year. We sure appreciate that!
The weather for such a late November day was actually a pleasant mix of light snow, a bit of misty rain, and a mild temperature.
The ride was slow going and hard at times, as the trail had to be “broken”. This allowed us to enjoy a few stops along the way and have some friendly chatter.
We journeyed by way of Crystal Falls, Tomiko Lake and Ellesmere Road. And we arrived at Tomiko Restaurant just in time for a wonderful lunch. All appreciated the food and service offered by this long standing Corporate Sponsor.
After lunch, our winter riders returned by way of Ellesmere Road and later, traveled on Riding Stable Road.
The ride was enjoyed by all who participated. The group arrived back at Riding Stable Road parking by 3:45 p.m.

The bonus Powassan Ride was a real bonus. The weather was sunny at around 12 degree Celsius. To everyone’s surprise we had 14 bikes, 5 side by sides and 23 riders turn out. The whole day was one of fun and socializing with riding through trails winding through red pine trees as well as challenging all. One rider lost a front wheel only to find the missing 4 studs by backtracking 200 feet along the trail. A side by side went to the left of a water hole and nearly tipped over. Quick action by other riders saved the day and made this a reason to stop, have a break and discuss. Take a look at the photos on line to see the action.
We stopped at three lakes to enjoy the view and then at two lookouts overlooking the fall colours and the countryside below. BREATHTAKING. Arrived back at our parking area at 3:30 pm.
Again thanks all for the great day and to Art and Chuck for some serious scouting.

Here’s something old, you might enjoy. Bombardier had a winter side by side, and yes, it’s not new, this is from way back in the 70’s.
