    Any riding along Hwy 3 in BC?

    We will be coming up from Oregon and spending some time in Rossland. On the return home we are stopping by the Methow Valley/Winthrop Washington for a few days. Is there any riding along Hwy 3 between the Hwy 395 and Hwy 97 junctions?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    CraigH knows a few places. The whole Oakanogon (sp) valley is full of trails, too.

    You could also drop back into WA and ride the Kettle Crest.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Our original plan is to ride the Kettle Crest trails after Rossland but was thinking of taking a different route just for the hell of it.

    It's BC, of course there's riding to be had. Christina Lake and Grand Forks BC have over a dozen little-known gems from mild to wild. Fire me a PM if you're interested but provide some detail as to what you are looking for (rail trail, mellow XC, rippin' XC/DH, shuttle DH). I live in Rossland but will be on vacation out of wifi range until Sunday night so have patience.
