#93 Penticton City Circle

Penticton is a cyclists dream. There are beaches to explore, quiet tree-lined paths, lazy riversides, flat and wide city streets and the rail-to-trail Kettle Valley Railway.

Distance: 17km
Rating: Intermediate some road sections

Cue Sheet:
1. Starting from the hotel near Penticton City Centre we rode along the new multi-purpose pathway on Okanagan Lake beach.
2. Cross the dam near the SS Sicamous and follow the pathway along the canal watching people floating downstream.
3. Take the crosswalk EAST for one block then pick up the Skaha Lake Pathway.
4. Just before South Main Street we followed the bike route NORTH through Penticton’s neighbourhoods
5. At Calgary Ave follow the old Kettle Valley Railway trail, but that’s another ride — see ride #91

    Can be quite affordable too by virtue of the Penticton hostel. Much less expensive than hotels, particularly for singles.
    And not just for young folks. I comfortably stayed there recently and I am over 60.
