The first 14 km of the bike course (south on Main Street, Lakeside Road and East side Road) is relatively flat. Just past this point, a left turn onto McLean Creek Rd. is the start of a significant climb of approximately 1 km, followed by a scenic winding road that leads through the Okanagan Falls countryside. The route will continue down Peachcliff Estates Hill, where athletes will then turn left on Highway 97 at 10th Avenue in the Township of Okanagan Falls. CAUTION is required on all roads, and avoidance of excessive speeds approaching curves and corners is critical. The next 35 Kms are relatively flat as you ride through Oliver and Osoyoos to the base of Richter Pass. From this point the course becomes more difficult. The long 11 km climb up to Richter Pass (elevation at summit , 2295 feet) and the series of challenging hills beyond the 84 km point complete the most difficult part of the course. From Keremeos (the 132-km point), the ride then follows a gradual uphill climb to the summit at Twin Lakes, and then a fast winding downhill ride to Highway 97 and north to Penticton. Skaha Lake Road to Main Street and the Transition area is also flat.
