Getting There For Our American Friends

100 Mile House is located in the South Cariboo Region of Central British Columbia, Canada

There are several ways to get there depending on where you are coming from.  All road directions below use secondary highways from major metropolitan areas in North Western USA and include some of the best motorcycle routes British Columbia has to offer.  Of course, you could take the most direct routes and miss all the scenery and twisties….but that is not why we ride motorcycles, is it??
