KVR Outfitters Self-Guided Tours:
All of our self-guided tours include most of your meals – anywhere food (and wine!) is difficult to come by, we have provided it for you – packed lunches for along the way, breakfasts at B&B’s, scrumptious hampers to feast from are all part of the ride with KVR Outfitters! Fresh and local fruit and vegetables, organic foods are our specialty – we source from local markets and suppliers for all our tours.
Tips for DIY trips – multi day cycling:
Although there are some great cafes along the way, there are also some long stretches of trail where you need to be prepared with food and especially lots of water. It’s a good idea to always have some high energy snacks such as trail mix and dried fruit with you and if high temperatures are a possibility you may also want to carry a liquid gel or energy drink powder. These products help keep you hydrated and replace electrolytes lost through perspiration. If you experience cramping, especially in your legs, you may need to boost your hydration/electrolytes.
Different styles of accommodation will provide different options for meals – for instance most B&B’s will include breakfast (often a full cooked meal). Motels usually offer tea/coffee making facilities and may or may not have cooking facilities – always best to check ahead if you want to prepare your own meals. Camping requires you to think ahead the most and consider your meal plans as you don’t want to be carrying too much extra weight!
Supplies can be replenished in Rock Creek, Beaverdell and limited supplies are available at The Old Cowboy Ranch just past Westbridge and Chute Lake Lodge. Supplies can be purchased at either end of the trail or at any major centers enroute to the trail, such as Osoyoos, Penticton, Kelowna, Grand Forks and Midway.
