Start and Finish line at the southeast corner of Blackburn Park, Salmon Arm BC
This gentle out and back route follows the north side of Mt. Ida along shaded Foothills Road to the open expanse of the Salmon River Valley. Signs of the 1998 wildfire and 10+ years of new forest growth are evident on both sides of the valley. This bike ride is almost entirely on flat terrain. Reward yourself at the Silver Creek half way point Aid Station with a juicy piece of watermelon and enjoy the views of Mt. Ida’s basalt cliffs and the cliffs of Bastion Mt. across Salmon Arm bay.
Attention: New finish to 35 Km Route!
The finish for the 35 km route is different than the 100 & 75 km routes. On the return, riders will turn north off Foothills onto 10th St SW towards Piccadilly Mall, then turn right on 10th Ave SW and head to the finish from the west and turn left on 5th St. SW.
