Penticton Bike Camp - Group Meeting on March 1

We’re hosting an informal information session about the Penticton Bike Camp on Tuesday, March 1, at 8:30 p.m. in the Speed Theory Store. Trev has been kind enough to open his regularly scheduled spin class at Speed Theory the same night at 6:30 p.m. to those people attending the meeting afterwards. He’ll be showing videos from last years’ camp including the sweet ride across the border into the US. If you can’t make it for the spin, show up at the store around 8:30 p.m. for the meeting. It will be a good opportunity to meet other people going to the camp and get your questions answered. I'll recap the meeting on the blog if you can't make it.

To get you thinking about the week of riding and what to expect, here are the Day 1 and Day 2 rides (the kms on the blog are more accurate than in the link if there is a difference):

Day 1 long: Anarchist Hill climb (180km)
Day 1 short: Osoyoos and back (130km)
Day 2: Naramata bench to Chute Lake (70km)

Everyone will ride from Penticton to Osoyoos on Day 1 and then you have some options: continue up the Anarchist climb, turn back for Penticton, or hit the Timmies in Osoyoos for as long as you want and then head back. The Day 2 ride will be a short out-and-back from Penticton to Chute Lake (check out the elevation grades leading up to Chute Lake). It’s considered a rest day with everyone riding the same distance. Day 3 is a long one and includes the Ironman loop- you have the choice of 225km, 180km, or 160km.
