Description Of This Tour

Join trail enthusiast Henry Sielmann, along with ecologist and birder Jim Shaver, on a cycling tour along trails leading from Oliver to Osoyoos. Starting from the old KVR Station in Oliver, the group will cycle along the Okanagan River to the natural habitat information kiosk located on Route 22. Following Route 22 for 1 km, the group will then cycle towards Osoyoos along a recently resurfaced section of the former KVR rail bed, before looping back across a wetland area to the point of departure. Along the way, Henry will talk about the vision of a valley-wide recreational pathway connecting many communities and natural sites between Osoyoos and Sicamous. Jim will point out some of the spectacular habitats, home to many of the Okanagan’s rarer bird and plant species. One or two hill climbs and a short ride on the shoulder of Highway 97 are required. E-assist bikes are permitted but not mandatory. Participants must be able to cycle 50km on rough surface with only one break. We will take a picnic lunch break on the shore of Osoyoos Lake.

Please be prepared for all sorts of weather – hot, sunny, windy, cold and rain too! Dress in layers and bring all-weather clothing, sunscreen, a sun hat, sturdy hiking footwear, a snack and at least 1 litre of water for all tours and events. For longer walks and hikes you will need at least 2 litres of water, as well as snacks and a bagged lunch (if not provided). Cameras, binoculars and plant and bird field guides are optional but add to your enjoyment. Please note any additional items to bring if applicable for your tour.
