Okay, I am interested. I think I will take Friday off for the Pilgrimage. Did you do the off road route last year that you link to above? I did the Routledge route so I have GPS tracks to Murray Lakes but I haven't been on the old Coldwater Road to Merritt etc. I am sure a few of the 'loops boys can give us a good route though. We planned on meeting them during the Routledge run in 2011 but we got snow delayed.
what bike & route are ya gonna ride?
I was checking out the roads from Merritt. We could do the Douglas lake road off Hwy 5A and then even try Lauder Road past Stephens Lakes. This goes right into Hwy 97 at Monet Lake (just south of the Loose Screw).
