Chugger is an annual memorial ride to commemorate the inspirational work Duncan MacKenzie completed at China Ridge. Duncan designed and lead the construction of the Rail Trail providing the first official single track bike trial at China Ridge.
The Chugger Ride begins in Princeton at Veterans Square, located at the intersection of Bridge Street and Vermillion Ave. Riders are shuttled to the China Ridge Trailhead where they follow the Ridge, Parker, Rail and KVR trails in a return loop to Princeton. Participants are encouraged to explore spur trails at China Ridge if they wish. Lunch is catered at the Coalmont Hotel, located on the KVR trail 18 km from Princeton. Following lunch, riders return to Princeton along the KVR which passes beautiful White Sands beach. White Sands is one of the many swimming spots located along the final leg of the ride which follows the Tulameen River back to Princeton.
