Date of Ride Report: August 24, 2014
Ride Report Details: Shelter Bay to Sol Mountain Lodge on Shelter Bay South Road, with stops at Mouth of Pingston Creek rec site, Catherine Lake Rec Site, a detour up Vanstone Creek to see if we could connect to Empress Road (no), returned via Limekiln Rd, Odin Road, checked out Pingston Dam, Killeen Road, Dry Creek Road back to Unload area. Total trip length about 145 Km
We had very good discussion with one of the owners of the Lodge – we were welcomed to the site but did not have time to take him up on offer to tour the lodge. They offer summer mtn bike riding on designated trails and numerous hiking trails. Winter is guided ski touring operations.
Other than the Vanstone detour suitable for almost all riders, watch for industrial and tourist traffic on all the roads
