I just did much the same ride. From MB to Calgary for a day or two, then me and my buddy rode off to Revelstoke and down thru the Kootenays, ending up in Nelson for the night. Next up was riding back up to the ferry at Balfour. Fantastic ride for sure! I have done this route a few times, always very enjoyable. Next time we will try hwy #31 after getting off that first ferry (instead of heading south to Nakusp) which takes you down past Trout Lake. You still end up at that second ferry crossing, but from the north end rather than the south. We were told by a local that another great route is to take Redding Creek Road just outside of Gray Creek for an real off-road ride ending up at Kimberly. This road is definatly not for on-road bikes. Will have to give a whirl next time I'm out that way.
