The 1st annual Gerick Cycle Lemon Grind is just around the corner. The Full Squeeze course is 90km and the Half Squeeze course is 46km. Both are 99% gravel road so ride whatever bike you feel is fit…gravel, cross, mountain, even electric bikes are welcome!
The Full Squeeze course includes the glorious Slocan Valley Rail Trail and follows the majestic Slocan River. The Half Squeeze course starts at the Lemon Creek parking of the rail trail and points the riders up the Lemon Creek FSR and over the Kokanee mountain range past Six Mile lakes. The final descent takes us to the finish just outside of Nelson. A leisurely pedal back along the highway to a sweet party hosted by Gericks and food and beverages provided by the Adventure Hotel.
