Kootenay Kruise 2013
August 23 to September 2
 
 

The Kootenay Kruise is a 10 day ride that begins two Fridays prior to Labour Day.  This year it will start on August 23.  The West Kootenays are known for relatively quiet roads, lots of places to stop and swim and many friendly little towns. This is an advanced ride as it is hilly and the distance to be covered is 47 to 97 kilometers per day. The Kootenay Kruise has exhilarating downhills which are honestly earned on the thigh burning climbs.

The scenery is always changing with valleys and mountains to thick bush and lakes.  The trip offers many activities such as a day of hiking, exploration of deserted mining towns and great food.

This trip will have vehicle support to carry luggage and a designated driver. The SAG vehicle has a bike rack along with the ability to carry one tired/sick rider as needed.

There are 5 nights of camping on the relative comfort of grassy lawns combined with 5 nights under roofed accommodation.  We have easy access to laundry facilities on days 3 & 6. The trip will begin at Blanket Creek Provincial Park, BC, about 15 minutes south of Revelstoke on highway #23.

This trip shows up on the calendar, every two years, so don’t miss the opportunity to Kruise the Kootenays.  Register today!
