On the morning of Tuesday, July 29, seven cyclists made their way from Halcyon Hot Springs into Nakusp

“I like coming through here because it is off the beaten path,” Rocky Mountain Cycle Tours owner Peter Weiland shares. “there are no tour buses or Wal Marts.”

On the morning of Tuesday, July 29, seven cyclists made their way from Halcyon Hot Springs into Nakusp for a rest stop on their journey towards New Denver. This was the second day of their six day tour that began in Revelstoke and will end in Creston.

The group is riding with Rocky Mountain Cycle Tour and is accompanied by two guides, a guide in training and a pace van.  The riders are from a variety of different homes including England, Texas, LA and Halifax. Each recounted their own experience of wonderment as they rode through natural beauty beside the Arrow Lakes.

Weiland’s company generally runs tours around the Banff area, but decided several years ago that he would offer a tour that unlocked some of the more offbeat treasures of B.C.. His tour company passes through Nakusp two or three times a year and always gets positive reactions from the cyclists.
