I want to ride by bicycle
Imagine cycling above and through vineyards with rugged mountains as the backdrop and sparkling lakes and beaches within the vista.
Here, it’s more than just a dream, which is why cyclists from around the world choose to pedal their way through Penticton each year. With one of the best year-round climates in Canada the cycling season is a long and enjoyable one.
Penticton offers an array of wonderful rides for cyclists of all abilities. It does not matter what age you are, what size you are or how fit you are – cycling is sport for everyone.
Take a leisurely trail among the wineries, a rugged route down a mountainside, a challenging road race or spin your wheels at the local BMX park. Adventurous mountain bikers will find the Three Blind Mice or Campbell Mountain single-track trails exhilarating. Leisure riders will enjoy an outing along the Kettle Valley Rail Trail, with its gentle grades and breathtaking views, and don’t forget to stop for a wine tasting along the Naramata Bench.
Whatever your cycling needs, Penticton can provide. We have top notch tour companies, rental shops & equipment providers, as well as hotels & motels, eateries and craft breweries who are happy to accommodate you when you need a break.
You’ll also find a large trail maps, bike repair stations and several bike racks right beside the beach in the heart of downtown.
