Me & my dad planned on cycling the Kettle Valley Railway from Midway to Princeton; we were gonna do it over three days and stay at the hotels on the line(Beaverdell, McChulloch, Chute Lake). When trying to book rooms we found that all three places were closed for different reasons; we decided that we would change our route as neither of us figured we could carry enough booze on the bikes :D
So this trip was all over the map.....started Saturday up in Penticton, hit a couple decks then went to a tailgate party in a vinyard on the Naramata Bench. Sunday we got dropped off at the Naramata Creek FSR and started heading toward Penticton
First station we hit was Arawana

Views up that way are great

Took a detour down to the main road so we could try some wine
Hillside winery

Looking towards Summerland

We got back to the Hotel in Penticton and decided we would ride up to Summerland for a drink, the ride to Summerland is slightly up hill but is sand, bikes and sand suck

almost at our destination (we are stopping on the far side of the white greenhouses)
http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t226/mudgirl_photos/Sept%2008/114.jpg
we couldn't find the road right thru to the winery we were headed for so we ended up sneaking thru the vinyard to get to the entrance. we went thru a catus patch and covered in prickles - even went thru our shoes!
On the patio @ Dirty Laundry

ended up getting a flat not even 1km up the trail so headed back to Penticton to get it fixed
the next day we headed up to Myra Canyon to check out the tressles

Naramata to Summerland and back was a 40km ride
Oliver ended up being 1km (was suppose to be around 25km)
Myra Canyon was around 20km
Othello Tunnels 18kmish (we kept going past the tunnels)

The reds at DL are on shelf (released a week or two ago)
I bought 2 cases of wine (got DL red and more Kerner and Vidal) - i tink we need to meet up and sample

The crush was suppose to happen first week of Oct - but its been pushed back - if its not on the Thankgiving weekend i plan to partake - I think that would be a cool expirence

Oh yeah and i'm totally down for another wine tour Laura maybe in the spring/summer tho - alot of them are closed in the winter
