Where in the world?
« on: January 17, 2020, 03:57:31 PM »

… or at least, where in Canada - I assume.

Here is the center page of my HOG Guide To Riding "new" for 2020 replacing the annual Tour Book, and I assume it is from Canada due to the fact that all the other info in the book is about Canada's 10 Provinces.

HOG has a nasty habit of displaying some pictures of amazing roads to ride in their HOG Magazine without informing us where the picture was taken.  This is just another case of the same, and I'm hoping someone recognizes the location in the picture and can let us know where we go to enjoy this road?

Thanks in advance.   :2vrolijk_21:

Kind of looks like the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island . . . but no way to be sure.  Nice road in any case!

I'm also inclined to say it's Easternish....certainly does not look like anything I've seen in a couple decades of riding(and driving) the West Coast of Canada. Not craggy enough to be The Canadian Shield . Not Northern Manitoba Alberta, or Sask....no four lane up there 'cept for  Fort Mcmurray or Grand Prairie.

Sorry...I just got where in the world it isn't.

Is there a note inside the front or back about it.?...or elsewhere in the book?

Leo, I think you got it right with the Okanagan.  Looks like 97 as you head north out of Penticton BC.

I've read the book cover to cover and there is nothing noted to indicate where it is.

Thanks for all your great suggestions thus far though, because it has led me to my best guess...

I now believe it could very well be Lake Osoyoos in southern BC.

Not BC, those are granite rocks visible through the trees, no granite in BC. Definitely the Cabot Trail just after you come down off the Highlands.

Good call on the granite, and others have mentioned the Cabot too.

It just didn't look like the Cabot Trail to me, at least what I remember of it... Last time on it was about 9 years ago.

Time we made our way back there.   :2vrolijk_21:

Guys, this is Highway 97 running along Okanagan Lake between Penticton and Summerland.  If you go to google maps and look at street view you can clearly see that mountain in the upper left of the photo.  Oh, and no granite in BC ?  I think you will find there is lots of it.  Just one example is the Stawamus Chief Mountain near Squamish BC ( about 60km north of Vancouver).  One of the largest granite monoliths in the world.

And we have a winner!  Tell him what he won Don.

Thanks so much for solving the mystery... Now I have to plan another trip to BC and ride this great road.  Last time I rode the westside was way back in '03, so it's time.  I was in Osoyoos in 2015 but never touched 97, and last year I went south from Calgary into Montana, then west through Washington to visit our son in Victoria, so missed that area again.  Won't miss it next time.

Again, it would be nice when HOG puts out a mag with pictures of nice riding roads that they let us know where it is.  Then again, this was also a fun exercise.

Thanks again everyone.   :2vrolijk_21:

That's a gorgeous road.  It's been too many years since I've been that far NW on a bike.  Yet another reason to do it again.

From the last time my wife & I were there in 2003

One of our favourite rides on our journey to Victoria.
