On the printed version there is a combination of gloss magazine, matt varnish and high gloss varnish treatments to give it a 3 dimensional textural look.

Our Sincere Apologies:
Clive Webber

The big fear of getting hard copy magazine back from the printer is finding things that were missed in the proofing like spelling mistakes. It is even worse when that spelling mistake is a persons name, especially a valued contributor. In this issue, Clive Webber, Facilitator for the Trans Canada Trail had his name misspelled with one b (Weber). It has been fixed on all the digital but the hard copy is out there. This one was mine. My apologies again.

Thank you. Brian McAndrew: President Vicom Design Inc. Publisher.

We were overwhelmed when we received this letter from Zoli in Port Moody and had to put it up here for everyone else. Thanks for letting us know.
I saw your magazine at Vancouver airport. I was there to pick up my mom, and while I waited I saw a copy had been left by someone on the seat next to me, so I picked it up and read through it. My wife and I rode part of the railway near Kelowna—can’t remember the name now, but it’s the section on the east side of the lake that passes over a series of trestles. We’ve been talking about going back and riding that stretch and other stretches ever since. So when I read through your magazine, I realized we now have a single resource to help us plan our trip. We’d been putting it off partly because we didn’t know of an easy single resource with all the info we need before this. So thanks for putting the magazine together! I think it’ll be really helpful for us.

If you have anything to share or contribute such as information, video links etc, contact us at info@kettlevalleyexpress.com and we will review and notify you if it is added to the site.

News & Updates ~ April 4 2014

Dana Meise (The Great Hike) just teamed up with Canadian Geographic as they named me "expedition of the year" and will be funding my journey as I solo hike 4000 plus km's to the Arctic Ocean on the Trans Canada Trail. This is a dream come true as I also will be breaking my own world record setting the bar very high. Thank you all for your support without you I could not have succeeded. Please give them a like in appreciation. I'm very excited to share this season with you all better than ever.

Update as of June 24th, 2013

- No farmgate closures at this time
- There are trees down about 3.5 km south of Beaverdell, some progress has been made in cutting/removing them but cyclists may choose to divert to Hwy 33 for this section. The trail can be regained by turning left at the General Store in Beaverdell (heading north) watch for the trail; it is just past the baseball diamond but before the road goes uphill and has an old wood shed at the base.

- Myra Canyon trestle #3 is still closed and under repair from the spring rock slide. A detour is being put in place but may not yet be passable. Best alternative to get around this is to email Rolf at Myra Canyon Ranch he will provide a shuttle for $40 for up to 4 people/bikes; you can get a hold of him at info@myracanyon.com. For hardened cyclists, you can also do a detour around White forest road just before Myra Canyon but some steep grades.
