Perks of the job!

Being a journalist is tough! You’re constantly under deadline, always looking for stories and the work is never done. But there’s definitely some perks, take this most recent motorcycle trip put on by Tourism Kamloops, Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association, Eagle Rider, Kamloops Harley Davidson, Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, and Destination BC.

The trip got started at Kamloops Harley Davidson where the riders were outfitted with bikes and all the necessary gear. The serious riding was about to get started so it was important to get everyone outfitted with the proper safety and fashion.

On day two, after a fueling up on breakfast at Ric’s Grill the tour set off for a short ride to Ashcroft with a stop at Tobiano Golf Course for lunch. The Ashcroft Rodeo was just getting under way as our media group pulled up. The Ashcroft Rodeo featured all of the usual rough stock events of Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc and Bull Riding, as well as Boys Steer Riding. There were also lots of timed events with Calf Roping, Team Roping, and Ladies Barrel Racing.

We’ve got plenty more riding ahead of us in the days to come! Check back to see how the trip is going.
