Because of its location at the edge of the mountains, Hope is ideally situated for road rides of any length. Whether you’re training for a long-distance tour or just wanting to explore the town, these rides will get your pedals turning.
The Hope Slide
Heartbreak Hill / Othello Road
- Turn right onto Tunnels Road and cruise back to town along the Kettle Valley Railway. This is the easier option and requires tires slightly burlier than slicks.
- Continue straight onto Othello road, ride to the Highway 5 entrance, turn around, and ride back over Heartbreak Hill. This is a nice option if you are looking for more hill climbing and the highway is busy or the weather is not favourable for highway riding.
- Continue straight onto Othello road and come back to Hope via Highway 5. There is a 2 kilometre long 6% hill on the way back for those wanting another hill climb. The shoulder on this portion of the road is decent, though not necessarily recommended on long weekends. This option is sometimes referred to as the reverse loop.
