When we get to Kamloops, the finish line is in sight, and it is time to start ramping things up. The roads get twisty, and the smiles get bigger.
This route isn’t very complex, and can be viewed in Google maps HERE. As we enter the mountains, the options of which way to go – do not really exist very will. The group will travel on Highway 5 – the Yellowhead. We haven’t set our exact stops along the way – but most likely will look something like – Valemount and Clearwater (as mentioned, not many options)
Our leader is now into his more familiar territory, and he has the details of arriving down solid – we just hope we can turn this into a parade – if we do, we will arrange a form up on the edge of town..
TRB will enter Kamloops via HWY 5 turning onto Victoria Street.
Follow Victoria st., to 2nd Ave, right turn and into the Sandman parking lot.
