Resupply on road to Bella Coola, BC
« on: March 22, 2011, 06:42:28 pm »
Has anybody been along the road to Bella Coola, BC lately?  If so, what is the food resupply situation like?  Are the stores reasonably well stocked in summer or should we plan to carry extra?

I have never ridden this route either by bike or by car but there are only small communities along this route once you leave Williams Lake.  It is 450 km to Bella Coola.  You will find small stores in some of the First Nations communities along the route.  Alexis Creek for instance is about 115km from William's Lake and has a small store, a restaurant and other services.

I googled "services along Highway 20, BC" and got the following link.  Hope it helps.

Find a copy of The Milepost.  It describes every mile of the roads in British Columbia and includes Bella Coola. 

I considered this ride in 2005, but opted for Fairbanks to Vancouver instead.  My impression is be prepared for minimal services for about half of the ride.

Good Luck.  I look forward to hearing how it goes.
