Expect minor traffic delays this Sunday for the annual Okanagan Ride for Dad event.

Motorists can expect delays between 10 and 10:30 a.m. along the ride route.

The police escorted ride, which consists of hundreds of motorcyclists, will depart from Banner Recreation on McCurdy Road at 10 a.m. onto Highway 97 and will proceed westbound.

The ride route will continue along Highway 97, across the William R Bennett Bridge into West Kelowna to Bering Road and will end at the Real Canadian Superstore at approximately 10:30 a.m.

Intersections along Highway 97 (Harvey Avenue) will be affected to allow the ride to proceed uninterrupted through both communities. RCMP greatly appreciate the patience and understanding of all motorists.

Police are advising motorists to expect some minor delays, plan ahead and consider adjusting their commute accordingly. Motorists are also reminded to obey all direction from traffic control flaggers and the police.
