Kettle Valley Trail Biking: Stage 1

Kettle Valley Trail Biking: Stage 1 - Castlegar to Beaverdell The first stage begins in the historic village of Castlegar, located at the confluence of the Columbia and Kootenay Rivers. We’ll visit the turn-of-the-century towns of Grand Forks, Greenwood, Rock Creek with some wilderness backcountry in between. One of the highlights will be the cycle along Arrow and Christina Lakes with a view only the railbed enjoys. Overnight stations will be ‘far off the beaten path’, where you’ll enjoy the serenity of this timeless landscape. Cyclists who enjoy single-track riding will be thrilled with the additional trails located at or near our overnight locations. This event will support TheBigWild.org to help raise awareness and funding for Canada's wild places.

Kettle Valley Trail Biking: Stage 3

Kettle Valley Trail Biking: Stage 3 For a short get-a-way from the city, this section of the trail makes for an ideal sampler (or finisher if you have done the other stages)!

On the next evening, we’ll overnight on Coquihalla Lakes. Sunday, we’ll ride downhill through perhaps the most spectacular section of all, the Coquihalla canyon and Othello tunnels through to Hope.

There will be festivities and overnight stay at Porpoise Bay Park (camping facilities only). Sunday, the ride will continue south out of Porpoise Bay (45 km -elevation gain is 1300 m) across Mt. Elphinstone, to Langdale and a finish-line celebration.

Ages ranged from 8 years (congrats Ben!) to a 79 year old who had 3 generations riding. Amazing! This ride has been hailed as the best point to point ride in BC!
