At a Glance

Itís hard to imagine anything more depressing than being a speed tax collector. Unless itís suffering from their irrational fear of speed. Itís so sad encountering these pitiful victims of tachophobia when they go off their meds and on a manic ticketing binge. In this confused state, theyíve even been known to wander off the Trans-Canada and wreak havoc on this quiet backroad DH, nestled in the Happy Valley east of Kamloops. Inconsistently engineered, but consistently curvy, this alternative to Hwy 1 undulates against a varying backdrop of suburb, canyon, farmland and forest. When you consider the 60-kmh (40-mph) limit at the western start, the 50-kmh (30-mph) zone in Barnhartvale and the blistering 80 kmh (50 mph) permitted the rest of the way, it would seem the Minister of Highways suffers from a touch of tachophobia as well. We wish these guys would get back on their Prozac.

 

Riders Reviews:

"I used to love this road, but in the last few years it has been neglected and the pavement has deteriorated significantly, so that it has become a bumpy, pothole-filled stretch of pavement through quaint country with once great curves. The traffic is moderate, but local, so they know the road and cut corners with alarming frequency. If the government would repave this road it would be pleasant. Watch out for farm animals as well."
