I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions from a planning or experience perspective on mulit-day epic rides/routes in BC?

I'm assembling a group (or as the Blues Brother's said, "We're puttin' the band back together"), and after some fun trips around the state of Washington, we're looking to do something much bigger, perhaps a weeklong trip. After scouring different places, most of us thought British Colombia would be THE ultimate place to ride.

So if anyone has any suggestions on bicycle tours, routes, or groups that run sagwagons for specialized trips, I'm all ears. And if you'd like to join, we're thinking summer 2006, so let me know!

Thanks all,

Thomas

Kettle Valley Railroad

They removed the rails and you can ride on the railbed of the old Kettle Valley railroad from Hope (blown up by Rambo!) to Midway, B.C. Takes about 4 days. It's very scenic and some of the old trestles are amazing works of engineering. There's a book written on cycling it. Do a Google search.

My wife and I did this one this weekend on the Sunshine Coast:

I've done the Sea to Sky ride with them twice a few years ago.

But they also do other rides in BC.

I've ridden all of the KVR sections, but not with them. (Self supported)

If you are interested in the KVR, buy this book.

The KVR is part of the Trans Canada Trail.

If you want something longer than just the KVR, there is the BC portion of the Trans Canada Trail.
