Oct 12 – Showcase the Valley Poker Run
October 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
This year the Showcase the Valley Event will provide riders with a mix of riding experiences that are a trademark of RCATV. Focusing on the Baron Canyon Trail system, the ride will start and end at the Pembroke and Area Airport. Trails will range from mostly green to blue with a few sections in the red category. An OFATV Trail Pass is required. One day pass will be available at the registration table the morning of the event.
Petawawa has no by-law allowing ATVs and SxS to travel within the municipality; however, we are thankful that Town Council approved a Special Event By-Law for that day, which will allow riders to travel on Black Bay Rd from the Airport to access this approximately 85-90 km loop.
The cost of admission ($30.00) includes lunch which will be provided by Wild Phil, a well-known chip truck owner whose meal offerings are always raved upon.
There is no fuel available on the trail so make sure you are topped-up before you start. As you trailer-in to Petawawa, there are several gas stations as well as Tim Horton’s, Starbucks and several other food outlets. The airport will also have breakfast available that morning at a reasonable cost.
Note that this ride will briefly use some local area roads so the driver of the ATV or SxS must have at least a G2 or M2 driver’s license. Do not forget to bring and carry with you, your machine’s ownership and proof of insurance.
Driver and all passengers must always wear a properly fastened DOT approved helmet when riding. Whether you’re on the road or out on the trail, it goes without saying that this is the safe thing to do and is also the law in Ontario.
