[Notes from Bob:]
The last 300 km or so will be the same as the Southern Rambles I rode this year, rather than return on Hwy 1 on the Canada Day weekend. The route through Vernon to Kelowna will also be changed.

[Notes from Bob:]
Hi Eric. We had the opportunity to drive my proposed Kamloops Kootenay 1000. It will be an extremely challenging route, but most of the roads are low traffic (except for the first 160 km and last 200 km). This will present another challenge as there are pretty much no 24 hr services, so a person will have to plan ahead, pack a little more stuff and stock up when things are open. Combine that with the large amount of climbing and it looks like it isn't a ride for a beginner. I'm thinking 6:00 AM start time, because, breaking it roughly into thirds, that puts a person into Greenwood for a sleep stop at around or shortly after dark. Bob
