I've only been able to find one old thread about this so I'd think that its time for an update.
Some points to ponder
-leaving Vancouver this Friday morning, returning Monday night
-not sure whether to take the Coquihalla (borrrring) and cut to Kelowna or the #1 (bit more excitement albeit somewhat slower)all the way to Kamloops. Is the Coq that much faster timewise?
-I'd like to get TO Calgary ASAP. I will have more leisure time coming back so I was thinking about the #3 highway.
-I've heard 10 hours averge time to Calgary with the #1 (taking the coq), how long is the trip with the #3 highway?
-any major road closures to note of? any signifigant problems posed by the fires? (should I bring a dust mask?)
I've checked the ministry of highways and they seem to indicate that all is well.
- bike has a max highway range of 170 kms (plus 25kms reserve).
