Food, Wine & Bicycles! The Coolest Cycling Event Returns to Watermark

Save the date! One of BC’s best cycling events, The Intrepid Stage Ride, returns to the South Okanagan for its third year on September 25-27th. This spectacular 3 day ride is an experience like no other, with a challenging 400 km scenic course that winds its way among vineyards, mountains, and lakes, and plenty of reward at the end of each day. The Intrepid takes care of your needs, from bicycle maintenance and luggage (custom DaKine luggage with registration) to lodging and meals, so you can fully enjoy the cycling experience of a lifetime.

Watermark Beach Resort has partnered with The Intrepid since its launch in 2013. We love hosting our cycling guests and helping make your experience memorable. Thanks to the overwhelming feedback from Intrepid adventurers, Watermark will host two evenings of this year’s event and we can’t wait to welcome back our previous guests and get to know the new ones!

Join The Intrepid Stage Ride and you will spend your days tackling long climbs and steep grades with your fellow cyclists. At the end of the day, cold beer and fine wine awaits you and you can indulge in a lakeside massage for your aching muscles. Relax and laugh with your newfound friends as you sip your pre-dinner cocktails. Each night of The Intrepid also features a nutritionally balanced, exquisite meal that will refuel both your body and soul.

For stages that end at Watermark, Chef Adair will be carefully planning a meal that showcases local ingredients and highlights the best of South Okanagan dining. With sumptuous local food, you will need delectable wine and the Watermark team will perfectly pair your Okanagan wine so that you get the full regional experience. Take in the beautiful views of Osoyoos Lake and reminisce about one of the best cycling days you’ve ever had over dinner with your fellow Intrepid adventurers.
