The Routes

10 Km Family Ride

This is a family ride but appropriate for all levels.  The road is paved with a marked shoulder. The route passes through a residential area then opens up to pastoral fields and farms.  The turn- around point is in the industrial park.  Keep your eyes open for the osprey nest perched on the hydro pole just past 20th Avenue!

32 Km Ride

This ride is for the more experienced cyclist.  Starting from the Field of Dreams, one cycles the same route as the 10 km route with the road being fairly level, paved with a marked shoulder.  Upon reaching Highway 97B, the cyclist heads south and out of the Salmon Arm area to a more rural setting.  The highway is paved with a shoulder but cyclists will need to use caution as the speed limit for vehicles is 90 km/hr.  Arriving at the Deep Creek turn-off, cyclist will follow Deep Creek Road which is also paved but without any real shoulder on the road.  Upon reaching Schoolhouse Road the cyclist will turn left and for a short period of time be on a compact gravel road before arriving at Mallory Road where one will turn left and travel a short distance before turning right onto Gardom Lake Road which you will follow back to Highway 97B where you will turn left and begin your return back to Salmon Arm making your way to the Field of Dreams along Auto Road. This ride is intended to give that extra challenge for the avid cyclist. 2 – 2.5 hour estimated cycle.

54 Km Ride

This ride is for the more experienced cyclist.  Starting from the Field of Dreams, one cycles the same route as the 10 km route with the road being fairly level, paved with a marked shoulder.  Upon reaching Highway 97B, the cyclist heads south and out of the Salmon Arm area to a more rural setting.  The highway is paved with a shoulder but cyclists will need to use caution as the speed limit for vehicles is 90 km/hr.  Arriving at the Deep Creek turn-off, cyclist will follow Deep Creek Road which is also paved but without any real shoulder on the road until the turnaround point at Hullcar Road Junction. Returning on Deep Creek road, upon reaching Schoolhouse Road the cyclist will turn right and for a short period of time be on a compact gravel road before arriving at Mallory Road where one will turn left and travel a short distance before turning right onto Gardom Lake Road which you will follow back to Highway 97B where you will turn left and begin your return back to Salmon Arm making your way to the Field of Dreams along Auto Road. This ride is intended to give that extra challenge for the avid cyclist. 2 – 2.5 hour estimated cycle.

CMHA Shuswap/ Revelstoke Branch

The Salmon Arm Branch was formed in 1983. Since its origin, one of the primary aims has been to respond to the needs of persons who experience mental illness and use mental health services. A primary goal has been to develop a support system for those individuals, including life skills and pre-vocational training, socialization, job placement, counseling referrals, housing, community awareness and education. In 2008 we formally changed our name to CMHA—Shuswap/Revelstoke Branch. Our Vision is to have mentally healthy people in a healthy society. We are committed to strengthening the capacity of individuals, families, professionals, organizations, and communities to address mental health needs in an environment that is free from prejudice, discrimination and harassment.

CMHA/Shuswap/Revelstoke champions good mental health for everyone and supports the full participation of those with mental illness and addictions in the life of the community. In addition to providing a variety of mental health services, we are committed to community development, mental health awareness and addressing the stigma surrounding mental illness.
