    Anyone know what good sections are open for bikes? Are the rivers crossable now that the fires burnt lots of the bridges?


    Anyone know any other BC, southern Alberta, border areas that would be a good week ride with a mix of double and ringle track?

    I'm in the process of posting this summer's trips - stay tuned.
    I'm naming them "GSing BC here to there" so you can search for them.

    GSing BC - Coleman to Moyie is a couple of posts below.

    Here are a few trips around Nelson

    The best ride I've done is Fernie - Hartley Pass - Bull River - Cranbrook - St. Mary Lake - Grey Creek Pass - Crawford Bay - Nelson. My next trip I'll continue to - Faquier - Kettle River - Big White ski hill - Kelowna. I'm probably heading that way Friday 16th.

    Revelstoke south to Needles was great. (stay on west side of Arrow Lake)
    Three Valley Gap south to Lumby then south to Kelowna is fabulous.


    Do a search for Kettle Valley you'll find lots. Check out BC Dual Sport site.
    Here's a few Kettle Valley pics. Most of it is open to motor bikes. Not in the city of Penticton or east of Hope.
