2023 18th Annual GVMC Circle Tour

June 23 – 25, 2023 was the 2023 GVMC Circle Tour. Friday, everyone was to make it to Merritt B.C., where we were based at the Quality Inn, on their own choosing their own routes, some longer than others. It was a beautiful sunny day without being extremely hot. Seven motorcycles and one car set out which made 12 participants including passengers. All arrived without incident to refreshments and snacks on the patio of the Quality Inn in Merritt B.C. to visit and relax until we went in small groups to dinner.

Saturday’s Circle Tour Ride started out in the rain and the riders were rained on at times during the ride sometimes very heavily. All who chose to ride came back safely. The ladies chose not to ride so explored the area in a car stopping for a nice lunch.

Saturday evening, the whole group met at the Garden Sushi Restaurant for a delicious Japanese dinner. After dinner more visiting till bedtime.

Sunday morning, all left early for the ride home which was again pleasant and sunny weather arriving home safely with no incidents,.

Hope to see everyone out again next year for the 2024 GVMC Circle Tour.
