You’ll find us at 61-111 Chartrand Ave. Logan Lake, BC  Wildfire Cruisers! Think about following the “road less travelled” on your way in or out of the Wildfire Recovery Cruise. Circle routes and byways are better than highways!

Tina writes, “Logan Lake was hit with the loss of tourism (in 2017) but we weren’t evacuated, so we don’t qualify for government help. I hope you are sharing this idea with other clubs. Even if they only stop for gas and meals it’s a big help to the local communities. In past years when the Harley ride comes through, the restaurant they stop at gets a huge boost, which in turn helps the town.”
