This ride is consistently cited as a guest favorite. From Penticton, you have a long but relatively gently climb (about 560 meters of elevation over 18 kilometers) through the cool forests of Green Mountain to the Apex turn off. Here, if you really want a challenge, you can ride the 800 additional meters of elevation to the Apex Alpine Village, with grades pushing 15%. That's about 30 kilometers of full out climbing (putting it in the same class at the famous Stelvio pass in Italy and making it tougher than the Alpe d'Huez in the Tour d'France)! Of course, most guests chose the more gentle option of skipping this additional torture and continuing down the back side of the mountain to White Lake, then continuing through Okanagan Falls and back along Skaha Lake to Penticton. We can modify the distance of the route based on the degree of challenge your group wants.
