Kvr

I have done the KVR a few years ago on my KLR. It was just as they were starting to make it into peddle bike route. I have rode from near Hope to Midway....This was before the big fire. One of the best trips to date I have done. I have had 3 KLR's and 18 year of exploring BC. As they say I been everywere man. Old wagon trails and pass lots of old mine sites. What a Province we live in, oceans, deserts, to the last marbles on a mountain top that you can ride to.........:character0053:

Basicly,

I was wondering if anyone had a good starting/end place. Anything somewhat should watch (or) watch out for?

Kvr

Navi, I know there has been a tremendous amount of work that has been done on the KVR tressles that were lost in the big forest fire a few years back but I am not sure if they managed to get all of them rebuilt or if they ran out of funding or what. I was told the other day that those that are not redone you can get around them via trails. The Aydra tunnel is one such obstacle that you must now go around due to unsafe conditions within the tunnel ie. cave ins and collapses. If you know the way it is easy to go around but it could prove frustrating to someone who does not know the way as there are many other connecting roads to the one that takes you around so you could easily take a wrong turn. Perhaps an organised ride could be aranged with local knowledge of the area.........just an idea. I would be up for that and happy to provide my two cents worth.
