Post Flèche Adventure - exciting new rides in Merritt

John Bates


You've given your pound of fleche, now come and enjoy an exciting new ride on the following weekend in the vicinity of Merritt, just 3 ½ hr by car from the big smoke. Two scintillating new randonnee routes of 200 km and 300 km will be staged on Saturday, May 26th. The routes follow some of the less travelled highways in the province and include one of the most thrilling descents - oh yeah, you have to earn it. Route descriptions and profiles can be previewed on the club web site BC Rando Web Page. For those that want to max out the weekend, an unofficial but beautiful off-road ride in the surrounding grasslands will be held on Sunday, May 27th. Contact John Bates (604-528-2549) for details.
