most people prefer an East-West route because of the gentler grade one
must take an 8 hour bus ride to Midway B.C.
Take the bus which will
arrive in the afternoon to give enough time to
re-assemble your bike which you had sent by Greyhound Courier
two days prior to
your ride.There is a first class motel,small cafe-restaurant and a
convenience store all within a few hundred feet of one another on the
main highway.After a good nights sleep you are ready to go by 9 AM next
to Beaverdell is about 41 miles.There is some disputed right of way and
many barrier gates through farms and pastureland, some of which are
locked.It takes about 6 hours of easy riding.
There are campgrounds and motels in Beaverdell but there is plenty of
space around to pitch a tent.
One can go from Beaverdell to McCulloch Lake on about 2 liters of water
even on a hot sunny day.The distance is around 33 miles.Enjoy a nice
lunch on the McCulloch Lake Resort balcony and then try for Shute Lake
Resort...camping and cabins... which is another 28 miles and passes
through beautiful Myra Canyon.
