I suggest going west to east. The wind on the prairie can be brutal and it almost always blows east off the Rockies. Hwy 1 between Chase BC and Sicamous BC isnít safe on a bicycle in my opinion. The road often hugs a cliff on one side, is two lane undivided and isnít engineered for the volume of traffic it carries. It will be years before that road is a 4 lane. Youíd be safer taking the 97C Connector then 97 from Westbank to Sicamous.

Or you could take Hwy 3. Itís 2 lane but has very little traffic compared to #1 and is so twisty that motorists canít really get going very fast. Plus thereís not much cell service so they arenít going to be texting. Plus youíll have a far greater chance at seeing bears.
