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.
