In the summer, the powder highway becomes the mountain bike highway. Start in Cranbrook, the town with the only legitimate local airport. Then head north on 93.

Once you hit Golden, it’s time to start biking. Go downhilling at Kicking Horse, or ride some of the plethora of local trails. There’s even camping at the bike trailheads.
Get on the road again and head to Revelstoke, where there’s even more good riding to be had. If you want some time off your bike, you could also go rafting, fly fishing, or climbing. Get food and beers at the Village Idiot.
On your way south, stop at Arrow Lake for some scenery, then head to Kamloops.
Kamloops calls itself the birthplace of “freeriding” so it’s a big bike town. You can ride the Kamloops Bike Ranch, one of the coolest bike parks out there, or hit the downhill trails at Sun Peaks.
