Perfect weather greeted the Ventura County Motorcycle Club as they hosted their 4th annual Bishop Dual-Sport motorcycle ride. The ride covers over 600 miles utilizing multiple loops of public highways and public lands managed by the BLM and U.S. Forest Service.

The event stages out of the Tri-County Fairgrounds in the City of Bishop. The riders were treated to a complementary dinner prepared by the Bishop Chamber of Commerce on Saturday night.

“The event went well, with a lot of family members attending” said Kyle Nunn of VCMC, “We would like to thank the BLM Bishop Field Office, Inyo National Forest, the Bishop Chamber of Commerce, the City of Bishop and the Tri-County Fairgrounds for welcoming us to Bishop.”
