Marble Canyon Tour

Hi Gang!

Okay here's another great ride that will assure a formidable case of crazy monkey butt!! (depending on your saddle that is!!) LoL!!

Marble Canyon.
This is a day tour -mostly asphalt that will take us into the lower cariboo and back down through Whistler/Pemberton/Lilouette.

The route:
Hwy 1 or #7 to hope.
From hope we go into the Fraser Canyon past Spences Bridge (there's a cool water fall to check out and we can have a laugh if someone has added a "Y" to the bighorn sheep warning sign at either end of the hwy through town) and up to Cache Cr.
From Cache Cr. we head up towards hwy 97 and turn off at hwy99 and make our way through to Marble Canyon. When we get to Lilouette, we have a choice of hwy 12 to Lytton or we continue on towards Pemberton , Joffre Lakes and then Whislter.

We can start in either direction, its all good either way!

The plan: start in Vancouver and ride!
This is an all day adventure with stops along the way to "take it all in"
I suspect that a solid 8 hours will be required. LoL!! I never seem to be able to do rides of less that 8 hours!

I'll add more to this if needed.
Come on out! Again there is much to see. and the country side is Beautiful BC!!

HaHaHaaaaaaEye.....LIKEIT!!!

    Hi everybody.. Only a few more hours to go!
    Be sure to pack some food and drink for your selves. We will make numerous stops along the way , but these could be in the middle of nowhere!

    This will be a great ride. Check your tires for "junk" before you leave. make sure your pressures are okay.. oil is up and the tank is full. First stop will be in Mission/Abby for a fuel top up. then we head up the #7 to hope. From there we hit the canyon. Canyon to #99 turn off just past (or before??) Cache Cr. Then the Marble Canyon. and home via whistler / Pemberton / Lilouette.

    Any questions : email me or call me[masked] seven four four six
