    Kamloops suggestions

    I'm heading down to Kamloops in a week for the Western Canada Summer Games. I've ridden some trails when I was down there for a stage race a few years ago, so I know a bit of the area but would love some suggestions.

    We're housed in the TRU residence, so I'll definitely go for a rip in Kenna-Cartwright. The MTB race course is out at the bike ranch so I'll be able to check out those trails as well.

    Looking for other ideas that are easy to access from the university or the bike ranch, something I can ride in my free time. I might have access to a vehicle. Happy to pedal up and ride down anything.

    Would love to get a run in on Rio but I have no idea where it is.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hey Lee,

    Would love to but we're on a team charter so no way to change a flight. Plus I have to get back to Whitehorse immediately after the games, I'm guiding some guys from Bike Magazine.

    Shouldn't be too tough to line something up. If you can get a ride out to Harper Mtn., do it. Or try any of the shops in town. I go way back with the Full Boar guys, but you'll get good treatment no matter where you go. Not many 'Loops locals hang out on MTBR, so you might do better asking in some more places than just here.

    If you are looking for xc trails there is a ton, but they are hard to find.

    The ranch is a good starting point, from there trails fan out in all directions. If you cross the road from the ranch look for trails that head up and west. If you link them together you can ride trails always to university.

    I am in and out of town but PM me when you are there and I might be able to give you the tour.
