Biking The Coquihalla Hwy In BC

Hi Everyone

I want to bike from Hope up to the old toll booth to prep for a Rocky Mnt tour. I will camp somewher over night and come back the next day. Has any one done the Coquihalla Hwy and if so what was it like. I could do the Fraser Canyon but if I can pull off the Coq it would be better. 50 km's to the old booth so I figure 1 day of climbing. Any thoughts

Thx

Are bicycles allowed on the Coquihalla? If they are, the road is decent.

The climb from the Great Bear Snowshed to Coquihalla Pass has a section of 11% grade.

Coquihalla Pass rises 1184m in 49.0km, the bulk of it (780m) in 17.6km.
