The Experience

We will be exploring the beautiful South Okanagan Region, Penticton, and the surrounding beautiful areas that the Valley has to offer.

Everybody is going to find some discomfort and find someplace to push themselves, absolutely really fantastic, variety is good – bring it on”!!  “So incredible to be back in our local, national cycling community again. Everybody is here for their own reasons, yet we get together as a big group, doing it together as a big group, this is long overdue.
