Joe Lloyd and his wife Flora really produce such great ADV videos. I have posted these guys before and this is another installment of their trip to Barkerville which is located here in BC just north of Quesnel. Cheryl and I visited Barkerville this summer on the Triumphs.
We were told the back roads were closed so I find it amazing that Joe and his crew made up to Barkerville the back door way successfully. Nice adventure they all had riding through Likely.
If you ever come to BC you have to go visit this authentic Gold Rush Town. See below for more info! Enjoy and just so you know I have emailed Joe directly asking about DVD’s for any of his videos and they are thinking about it but for now just an online download for the full video on their website. Would anyone buy a DVD? Please comment…just curious because we would have all his travels.
The Curbsyde team follows the roads, history and the culture of the incredibly beautiful British Columbia backroads to discover the Road to Barkerville. The area surrounding Barkerville is rich in gold panning history. While en-route they encounter natural wonders, wildlife, colorful characters, tourism hot spots and destinations well off the beaten track.
Today, Barkerville is a historic site like no other…
Unlike many gold rush towns from this era – which have long disappeared – Barkerville remains a thriving place, rich in history and full of life. You can tour the town with one of the colourful characters from Barkerville’s past, watch the notorious Judge Begbie strike fear into the hearts of history’s criminals, witness authentic gold rush theatre, and see a real Cornish Waterwheel in action. Pan for gold with your family and friends, visit Barkerville’s well preserved Chinatown, and go back to school in the 1800s. Or, learn about the town at your own pace by visiting our historic buildings and beautiful displays. Our town’s merchants, restaurants and accommodations will provide you with everything you need for a genuinely comfortable trip into the province’s past.
