Start and Finish line on 5th Street SW next to the Cyclists Lunch – Playground area of Blackburn Park, Salmon Arm BC
A popular route with many local cyclists, this 75K bike tour circles Mt. Ida. Ride the scenic valleys of the Salmon River and Deep Creek linked by a broad farming valley east of Glenemma. A few short (less than 1K) climbs will challenge you but these quiet roads are mostly flat to rolling past farms and forests. Watch for five historic community halls along the way, the entrance to the Caravan Farm Theatre, an attractive, newly constructed Carmelite monastery and the Deep Creek Tool Museum.
The map below shows the start and finish for the 75K and 100K routes. The start and finish are located at Blackburn Park, which is on 5th Ave SW.
