At a Glance

Letís face it. The East Kootenays isnít the greatest place to be on a bike. With a limited number of paved routes, gentle topography and heavy B.C.-Alberta traffic, even the most enthusiastic knee-draggers wonít be replacing their pucks very often. But things arenít entirely bleak. This stretch of the Crowsnest boasts some of B.C.ís better curves and asphalt-- at least for the first 11.0 km (6.9 mi), along the narrow Elk River Valley. After that, the terrain relaxes its grip and the road meanders lazily through an appealing combination of field and forest. Upon reflection, maybe the East Kootenays arenít such a bad place to spend a little two-wheeled time after all.
