The bike ride is ~ 12 kms each way, i.e. 25 kms in total. But it is FLAT! If you want to avoid multitudes of extended families with babies in bicycle trailers clogging the trestles, try to do the ride before 11am. You'll get to enjoy the remoteness of the place. If some of the blackened trees make you think of forest fires, you are a good observer. A large part of the mountain was victimized by a forest fire 10 or 20 years ago, and that fire also consumed the original wooden trestles. What one rides over today are replicas built by volunteers for the greater good of cycling ;-)
The following two pics prove that this trip is also good for child inside the man ;-)

In the afternoon, I couldn't resist getting my feet wet at the beach in downtown Kelowna.
