June 21st Shuswap/North Okanagan Trip Report

Based from spacious and comfortable Sorrento Centre on Shuswap Lake, 18 CCCTS members explored the quiet paved backroads of the Shuswap – North Okanagan. 13 cycling routes, ranging from 40K to 60K to 80K, were offered over the 5-day Hub & Spoke led by new Club member, Pat Hutchins of Salmon Arm, Carol and Glen Evans of Tsawwassen and Jeanetta and George Zorn of Salmon Arm. Four adventurous members self-guided to get an early start for longer routes. Afternoon swims in Shuswap Lake at the Centre’s beach cooled us down on mid-30s C days. Happy Hour local veggies, crackers and dips, fresh strawberries and the Centre’s fine dinners set us up for the next day’s cycling adventures. The “heat dome” scorcher arrived on June 25 as we departed.
