We headed up to Salmon Arm for a few days this week to check out
the town and the trails. Salmon Arm, located in the Interior of BC,
is part of the BC Bike Ride "Coast Mountains, Interior, and
Kootenays" tour. It's also the location of the BC High School
Mountain Biking Championships this year, an event organized by
BCBR's Chris Stromgren and sponsored by BC Bike Race.
There was some awesome scenery coming into town...
Chris was kind enough to take us out onto the trails, showing us
some of the brand new trails that are going to be added to the High
School Champs course.
After some pints of local craft beer
at The Barley Station Brew Pub and a night of rest, we headed back
to Vancouver via Pemberton (location of the heli-drop on Day Two of
the tour) along the Duffey Lake Road. Check out the diverse
Entering the Fraser Valley
Farmland of the Pemberton Valley
With a stop in Whistler for dinner, it
was an awesome trip. Want to see all of this and more? Come join us
