Shorter Southern Rambles Ride Report
Midday, 31c according to Barry, the first heat of the year on a ride, and 38k and 800 plus meters of up staring us in the face; oh the joy of it all. So began the middle stretch of this year's SI300, which had started in Penticton at 07:00 in the awakening sunshine and about 5c, found it's way to Keremeos, over the rollers to Nighthawk, through the Border, along Palmer lake, through Loomis and over to Tonasket where the above noted delight commenced. After the fun in the sun, the ride made its way over to Chesaw, where more climbing put paid to most of our legs (Ian's excepted I'm sure), before screaming almost 1,000m downhill to Oroville, through the Border at Osoyoos and finishing off with an evening cruise North and home.
14 of us started, 12 finished and 2 came to their senses early.
Well done everyone.
