I thought your members may be interested in a great two-day, fully supported, fundraising cycling event in Kelowna; the MS Bike – Okanagan Experience.

As always, the ride weekend includes meals, snacks, fully mapped and marked routes, on-route mechanical support, and complimentary wine tastings at rest stops.

New this year is a 100km route that I think your members will especially enjoy.

The ride will be held on September 9-10 and cyclists can register at  Right now the registration fee is only $50 but will increase to $70 on August 1st.

If you have any questions, concerns or require more information you can contact me at or call 1-800-268-7582, Local. 7262.

Mable Lake Ride July 22

About the ride: There are two start points: Coldstream and Lumby.   The ride from Coldstream to Lumby is along Hwy 6, from Lumby to Mable Lake is along a rural road used by people going to Mable Lake provincial park or local farmers.   It is essentially a ‘no thru’ road so traffic is usually light, it is quite scenic.  At Mable lake there is a small store with limited food selection right in the park.  this is an out and back ride.  

Start time 9 am from Coldstream or 10 am from Lumby.

From Coldstream: the start point will be on  Kalamalka Road, just a short distance past the beach at the tennis courts.  Round trip 122 kms.  (open the link)

From Lumby: the start point will be at the grocery store parking lot, in town on the hwy.  Round trip 76 kms (open the link)

If we have a good turn out, we may create two groups, last year we had close to 30 riders.   We can sort this out in Lumby.
