The Intrepid Stage Ride Okanagan

September 28 - September 30 2018
Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada

Embodying the classical traditions and spirit of cycling, The Intrepid is the perfect finale to your road cycling season.

On this fully supported, half weekend adventure and half cycling challenge, you will experience some of the most incredibly diverse scenery in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley as you work to claim your own honours.

Along our 3 day 450 km route, is the perfect blend of scenery, flats, climbs (5000m) and necessary grit while you ride along side a select group of like-minded adventure cyclists in your effort to win overall and segment challenges.

Harkening back to a different age of our sport where camaraderie was as important as the riding, all riders will share their experiences at challenging days’ end over a meal and a glass of wine at luxurious resort accommodation.

If you love adventure, cycling, and have some good stories to share with new friends, then we want you along on our Intrepid adventure.
