Much fun was had at McBride’s Annual Bung Bung Vintage Ride, but gaining elevation took more than just good riding on older sleds – it also took some setting of jets on the carburetors to account for the atmospheric pressure change. Regardless it was a great success according to organizer Sara Olofsson.
More than 150 people took part in the ride up to Mount Lucille Cabin and more than 85 sleds made the journey up. About 40 vintage sleds did not make it to the cabin. It’s a bit of a downer, but part of the experience. Organizers called the abandoned sleds “fallen soldiers.”
Folks made the trek from all over, including Prince George, Edmonton, St Albert, Lamont, Ardrossan, and Grand Prairie. Many locals helped out in the organizing of the event.
