Start with the Right Gear
Sipping his morning pick-me-up out of a coffee mug featuring a photo of his family, Sun Country Cycles owner Ricardo Smith was gracious enough to meet me as I began my Vernon cycling journey. I arrived first thing in the morning and the Sun Country parking lot was already full of customers - either dropping off their bikes to get serviced or picking up rentals like me.
Among the buzz of activity, Ricardo rolled out a beautiful mountain bike with a feature that made my eyes light up – electric pedal assist. It’s one of a few models of e-bike Sun Country sells. They rent out the Trek Powerfly - Electric Pedal Assist to folks like me who want to explore for four or eight hours at a time.
Helmet on, lights adjusted, demo complete, I was ready to take on Vernon by bike.
