    Good road rides near Invermere?

    Hey folks, I'm planning to be in the Invermere area later this month and hoping to do some road riding. Any recommendations for a good ride?

    I was thinking about going up Toby Creek Road to the ski hill but last time I was up that way the road was in pretty bad shape. Your recommendations greatly appreciated.

    No takers, eh? Maybe if I asked for good mountain bike trails.

    I would just hit the main highways, All the Calgarians that own the valley are pretty nice to highway cyclists, they're only dicks in-city.

    This is factual.
    Main highways have good shoulders; So you should be good-to-go.
    My Dad is one of those "Albertan owners"; he owns a time-share in Fairmont Hot Spring.
    I have cycled the circular route that follows highway 93/95 to Invermere, and then back along the old highway (don't know the number) which is on the west side of Lake Windermere (opposite side of the lake to highway 93/95).
    This takes me back to Fairmont
    The old highway has little to no shoulders; and I don't recommend riding it at night; but during the day it's fine.
    It's not the bullet with my name on it that worries me. It's the one that says, "To whom it may concern".

    The road between Invermere and Golden is gorgeous. And not too difficult either. For more of a challenge, do Hwy 93 out of Radium to Castle Junction. Also a lovely road, but it is more hilly than the one to Golden.

    This is a great idea.
    The second part is also good for those looking for a greater physical challenge.
