In our humble opinion, this is the best motorcycle road in southern B.C. Even if you’re a glutton for twistiness, Highway 3A from Creston to Kootenay Bay will test your appetite for turns. After beginning with a light starter up the east side of the fertile Creston Valley, the Ministry of Highway’s head chef serves up a never-ending feast of curves, sweepers and esses along the shores of Duck and Kootenay Lakes. If you have a choice, put away your Fat Boy and unsheath the ZX9R. But whatever your dry weight, come prepared to overindulge. Beautiful water and mountain scenery are almost always in view, traffic is light and development consists of the occasional pub or other service. The only thing not perfect about this road is the pavement, but in B.C., no doubt you’ve ridden far worse. Take it from us, you won’t find a better riding experience anywhere in the province. Okay, so maybe our opinion’s not so humble after all.
