Caribo(ou) migration

Cyclists make their way from just outside of Quesnel to Wells.

Traveling in groups up to 500,000 animals strong, at an average speed of up to 55km/h for up to 5,000 km a Caribou migration is characterize by credulity–stretching numbers.

Closer to home a herd of Cariboo cyclists will once again be hosting their migration, though with smaller numbers.

The third annual Cariboo Migration bike ride is an 82-km ride from just outside of Quesnel to Wells.

Following the gold rush highway and its climb of 726 metres, the ride offers a twisting ribbon of asphalt through beautiful Cariboo scenery.

Organizers will have bike maintenance and first aid crews on hand just in case and, on a more positive note, rest stops along the way to enjoy the scenery and refreshments to keep riders energy from flagging.

If, however, 82 km is a bit far for a Saturday afternoon bike ride, the organizers also offer the Cariboo Calf ride, from Troll Ski Resort to Well, which is approximately half way.

Once in Wells those made of steel and hydraulics can make their way back by bicycle, but for those who cost less than one million dollars, there is a free shuttle that will return you to your vehicle, or, riders can stay in Wells  and enjoy everything the small arts community has to offer.

Fee is $50, funds go to Baker Creek Enhancement Society and the Mountain Caribou Trust Fund.
