The Gold Rush of the 1860’s attracted tens of thousands of prospectors to the Cariboo region from around the world. Today, the untapped wilderness and ranchlands are attracting a new wave of modern-day adventurers, seeking their own golden dreams.
We had been hearing a lot about the gravel gold up there so we booked the entire Tutti Gravel Inn for four days of mid-summer, type 2 fun.
We filled the fridge with food and stocked our coolers with ice and bevvies. Each day started with made-to-order espresso drinks and ended with a slice of pie from Horsting’s Farm Market. In between, were hours of unpaved riding traversing the incredible ranchlands of the region. It felt like we traveled through several climatic zones as we covered miles and miles of gravel service roads, snowmobile trails, and even muddy cattle paths.
It’s hard to think of a better way to experience the Cariboo backcountry than by bike.
And there is no better way to do it than to base yourself in Clinton with a group at Tutti Gravel Inn.
