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. (Please note for your safe return we have altered the route slightly at this point) From Highway 97B we are asking cyclists to take a right onto Hudson Road and turn left by Mellors on Mayfair Rd. Then, turn left onto Black Rd. Cyclists cross the highway onto Industrial Park and head back to the Field of Dreams via Auto Rd SE.

This ride is intended to give that extra challenge for the avid cyclist. 1.5 – 2 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 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. (Please note for your safe return we have altered the route slightly at this point) From Highway 97B we are asking cyclists to take a right onto Hudson Road and turn left by Mellors on Mayfair Rd.

Donation Information

Ride Don’t Hide raises awareness and funds that make a significant impact in our community. Your donation enables us to continue this essential work in our community. This event will provide essential mental health programs and services including:

  • Funds raised from the 2018 ride will continue to promote the mental health of everyone in our community. This means funding programs like Living Life to the Full and our new Wellness Centre for youth based out of Salmon Arm Secondary School. We want our youth to have access to health services including mental health so this generation of young people and generations to come can thrive in our community.

Mental health means feeling good about who you are, having balance in your life and in your thinking, and responding constructively to life’s highs and lows. Mental health can affect many areas of our lives: work, school, home life, relationships with others, sleep, appetite, energy levels, ability to think clearly, make decisions, physical health, life satisfaction and more…… Everyone should practice good mental health. It will help protect you from mental illness, and it can help you get the most of out of life.

The Challenge: Many people don’t see the issues surrounding mental health affecting them or their family.  They don’t currently see themselves as part of the issue or the solution.

The Reality: Each and every person and family in this country, in this community, has been or will be affected by mental health issues. We all have mental health! We want everyone in our community to embrace the knowledge that we all have mental health and by doing so we are creating healthier communities.

The Ask: We are looking for local business and community members to be part of something Bigger! Become mental health champions by forming a Ride Don’t Hide cycling team. We need the community’s help to support grass roots initiatives like our Wellness Centre and further break down the stigma surrounding mental health.By making mental health for all a priority, together, we can make all the difference!  Register your Team and start fundraising today! 

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.
