At a Glance

Weíve broken a couple of our own rules here Ė those niggling ones that deal with highway length and speed limits. Our shortest DH, which hugs the length of the eastern shore of Skaha Lake, is only 9.1 km (5.6 mi) long between the 50 kmh (30 mph) speed zones of Okanagan Falls and Penticton. Itís 11.4 km (7.1 mi), if you stretch it to include the irresistible S-curves inside the speed zone at the northern end. Too short to be called a Destination Highway? Perhaps. But we simply canít pass up a well-paved, lakeside run thatís twisty from top to bottom, especially when the alternative is the Hwy 97 freeway wannabe. If youíre passing through, itís on your way; if youíre biking the area, it links up well with other DHs and TEs. Besides, rules were made to be broken.
