I have had a few requests to post this ride again! There are a few changes from the August 12th bike ride!

Let's ride from the Myra Station Parking lot for approximately 14 Klms before turning around to head back to the parking lot. We will ride an extra 2 Klms from Ruth Station. That will put us at the trailhead for the Lost Lake Trail. For those who have been on Rich's Myra Bellevue hikes this will be neat to see where it joins the KVR. A few on the August 12th ride felt it would be nice to have gone further as it is a easy ride and no steep inclines. We will ride over 18 trestles and pass through two tunnels! Just a note that the extra 2 Klms each way on the other side of Ruth Station has potholes. It is rideable just not as smooth. The distance will be approximately 28 klms instead of 24 Klms.

DIrections to Myra Station parking lot: starting from downtown Kelowna make your way to KLO Road and turn left. Follow KLO Rd to the "Y" junction of KLO Road and McCulloch Rd. Take McCulloch Rd and follow the directions signs pointing to Gallagher's Canyon Golf Course. Continue past the golf course and you will find the road narrows as it winds its way down to a narrow bridge crossing KLO Creek. Keep going until you see a high voltage bridge crossing the road. The next exit on the right is Myra Forest Service Rd. Follow this gravel road for 8 km until you come to a cattle guard. Turn right immediately past the cattle guard and you are in the Myra Station parking lot.

We will stop for a short rest half way and then ride back to the parking lot.

HELMETSare mandatory for this bike ride.

Bring water, snack, sunscreen. Ensure your bike is in good working condition and have a clean chain. You should carry a spare tube and a patch kit. I will bring a pump.

For anyone who is interested we can go for after ride refreshments at the 97 Street Pub at the Best Western Hotel on the corner of Leckie and Harvey Ave.

Please keep your RVSP current and if you need to contact me on the day of the ride, my cell number is[masked]-6733.

How to find us:Google Myra Trestle Parking lot for excellent directions.
