I would like to invite you to join us for the upcoming RnR 1000k. This will be a challenging ride that will cover some of the most beautiful terrain that South West BC has to offer. The ride includes farm lands, mountains, canyons, waterfalls, etc. and some incredible vistas.

Note that this ride should be considered as challenging. Support will be minimal, and there are significant climbs on the first day (Coquihalla) and last day (Duffy Lake Road). In addition, there are some considerable distances between controls that mean riders will have to pack carefully – particularly water if the high temperatures continue. The forecast is looking very good as of this morning...

The ride is likely best broken down as follows:

Day 1: Coquitlam to Kamloops ~364km

Kamloops has lots of accommodation. Options can be found here: http://kamloops.travel.bc.ca/accommodations/

Day 2: Kamloops to Lillooet, ~360km

Lillooet has retail stores to stock up including Buy-Low Foods at 155 Main Street. Options for accommodation are not as plentiful, but can be found here: http://lillooet.travel.bc.ca/accommodations/

Day 3: Lillooet to Coquitlam, ~276m. Enjoy the lovely Sea to Sky back to town!

The ride starts and finishes at 668 Gatensbury St. If anyone is interested, we could provide RV accommodation for a couple of people. Call if there is any interest.
