Kamloops: Kamloops Bike Ranch
When I first signed on for this trip I expected to be in an arid desert for most of the trip. It wasn’t until Kamloops that the environment met my expectations. There are an amazing number of trails surrounding Kamloops and the freeride attitude runs deep. After a stop at the Bicycle Cafe shop and breakfast at Hello Toast we hit the local bike park. To say it was hot and dusty would be an understatement. We had a good time, checking out their large bike park with a wide variety of progressive features. We couldn’t stay long since we had to get to Whistler that evening to see the Slopestyle finals at Crankworks, but I wish we had more time to explore this legendary riding area.
Kamloops had a fine dust that made simple riding look ridiculously dramatic.
Even though Leanne lived about a mile away she had rarely ridden the park. After almost a week on the trip, she felt more confident and adventurous riding there.
