Just happened to find this report. Awesome job on the writing and the pictures. I love old tunnels, so this is now on my list of future rides.

Dave6, how did your group ride go? I figured we would see pictures, etc. by now.

Since we finally have some sunshine here, I am going to Bike night at the A&W on 16th tonight with the road beast. Depending on the turnout, will determine how long I stay, I should be there by 6 p.m.

Like Tom said last night the section north of Castlegar that I have not done as well as the Merrit to Spences bridges would be interesting. There are some good rides north of Lytton and Lilooet that could be rolled into a trip like that to.

The cream rises to the top...

It took a while for this report to surface it seems but I want to compliment you on a great RR in the beautiful province of BC. Having lived there makes this even more interesting. Keep ridin and reportin. Some day I would hope to travel there on the G.P.

The pictures are beautiful!

Don't worry about the get off, it happens more and more frequently as the bike says "Go for it!!!"

Thanks for sharing. I've a new "Must" on my ride list.

Great report and great pics.

Excellent and detailed RR with top quality pics. One of my favorite areas to ride. Rode Brookemere to Princeton in October, beautiful fall scenery then.

Thanks for this! The KVR has always been on my list to ride, now I might have to bump it up a few places and see whether this summer will allow me to get out that way.
