Event description

Description

"the Lillooet 500" - 30th June – 3rd July 2017 Ride leader - Ryan Petersen Description : A tough but truly epic adventure which was undertaken by 5 staff and club members in 2016. This route heads out from our store in Sapperton to Harrison on the road to the Sasquatch Inn - then we leave the pavement behind for 160km of bumpy forest service roads and 4x4 tracks up to Mt. Currie following Harrison Lake and the Lillooet River. From there we ride through Pemberton, Whistler and Squamish down the Sea-To-Sky and back home.

Expect to see the most beautiful lakes and rivers and all that the B.C. backcountry is famous for!

Distance : 450KM ( feels like 500km though)


Duration : 5 days

Requirements : • Lightweight camping equipment. • Bike tools and spare parts • Food supplies for 4 days • Walk-able cycling shoes. • Appropriate clothing for wilderness travel • Good level of fitness.


Ideal bike: A bike with front suspension or high volume tires with a wide-range of gearing ratios that can carry all your gear.
