Saturday Ride

Lawrence mentioned that there is a ride from Kelowna Cycle tomorrow (Saturday) morning, starting at 10am. I’m out of town but please enjoy the start of the cycling season if you are keen ?

We are getting there …

More light, warmer days. Cycling isn’t far off!

If the roads are dry and the morning mild, we will start the rides next Sunday, April 9, at 10am. Meeting spot is Bean Scene on Dickson.

This early in the season, rides will happen weather permitting. You can always show up for coffee if it’s wet 🙂

Old Vernon Road – Bike Lane issues

Please see below the note from Chuck about Old Vernon Road bike lane issues. Could you please email him directly if you have engaged in this with the ministry, are planning to do it or have other questions?

I believe it is an important issue … such a dangerous stretch that we all ride frequently.


So the major issue is when cyclists or pedestrians walk or ride along Old Vernon Road, there is no room for them as the road is too narrow. Especially when there are time trials for the competitive cyclists, there are considerably more cyclists on the road and I fear that one day, one of them is going to get hit.

I also ride this road and don’t like the fact there aren’t any bike lanes from McKenzie to Spencer or Spencer to Hwy 97.

I would like to know if anyone in your group has started a dialogue with the ministry of highways regarding making bike lanes on Old Vernon Road from McKenzie to Spencer Road.

Please let me know as I have made an initial call to them.
