i went back and forth on giving this a 3 or 4 and settled on 3. It is a beautiful area as is most of BC. The roads it connects to at either end lead to some world class beauty, hence the 3. You start out riding along the Fraser River. You are between the Northern Rockies to the East and the mountains on the Pacific coast. It gets a little more hilly from soda creek to 150 mile house. You leave the Fraser and ride along several of BC's many lakes. Closer to Cache Creek the scenery takes on a high desert look.
The pavement is generally excellent on the Cariboo. There are many sections with passing lanes. The terrain is generally flat with long straights and sweeping curves.
