Since 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 morning. Midway 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.
