The Lake-to-Lake Bike Route in Penticton now reaches midway into the city from Okanagan Lake.

After completing the first and second sections of the project, bikers can now use the two-way track along Martin Street and Fairview Road, from Lakeshore Drive up to Duncan Avenue.

“Construction of the first sections of the Lake-to-Lake Bike Route is now substantively complete and the barricades along the route are being lifted,” reads a press release from the City.

“Cyclists heading south along Fairview Rd. will need to exit the route before the Duncan Avenue intersection. Follow the signage and exit left at the Cossar Avenue lane to access the multi-use trail or to proceed to Duncan Avenue, following the normal rules of the road.”

Upon completion of the entire project the route will live up to its name by connecting from Okanagan Lake to Skaha Lake, and estimated cost of $8 million. In June, the City reported that construction on the bike lane was ahead of schedule.
