Sorrento Bike Trip - June 25-28

Click on the title to make this post easier to read. This hub-and-spoke bike trip is based out of Sorrento, located near Salmon Arm, on the banks of Shuswap Lake. There will be day rides starting and ending in Sorrento, with ride options available here and here. There are many country roads to explore with minimal traffic. Obviously there are more rides than time available; the plan is to whittle down the choices closer to the date, with longer rides on full days and shorter rides on arrival and departure days.  We will stay at the Sorrento Center in their cabanas, which are rustic cabins with no running water, meaning a traipse to a washhouse nearby for showers/bathrooms/dishwashing. Dishes, cookware, and bedding are NOT provided. There are options for meals to be provided or DIY. Apparently, they can accommodate special diets. If it rains, we ride and/or hang out in the cabana playing full contact Scrabble. Limit is 8 participants. RSVP: by notifying Teresa, providing a $75 deposit before March 25. Let Teresa know if you plan to have your meals provided by the Sorrento Center. Also let her know if you have room in your vehicle to take other passengers Cost: gas $ to get to and from Sorrento. Shared cost of cabana ($85 per cabana per night, divided among total people). Food -there is a local grocery store close by. $ for souvenirs to make your friends jealous, in the form of chainsaw art. Bring: a bike in good working order, bedding (sleeping bag), toiletries, towel, tools and supplies for flats, bike clothing for the weather conditions, food if you plan to cook, and many items recommended here. Meet: 12pm-1pm at the Sorrento Center,1159 Passchendaele Road, Sorrento. It's a 4-5hr drive from Vancouver. Tours are open to members only.
