Because the afternoons can be very warm, many participants choose to bring a cooler change of clothes to wear when not riding. (i.e. Breathable pants, or shorts).The weather can vary greatly in the Okanagan Valley so please bring layers appropriate for a variety of temperature, ranging from cool, rainy days (10-15 degrees Celcius) to hot sunny days (high 20’s to high 30’s degrees Celcius).
