Bikepacking Canada Adventure

In the summer of 2020, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, I was forced to cancel my plans to take part in two ultra-endurance races in Europe. In lieu of this, I decided to use this opportunity of closed borders and social distancing to make the most of summer and explore my beautiful country. After a short holiday with my wife in Vancouver, I started cycling north towards the Yukon and after reaching Whitehorse, I turned and started heading east. Over a period of 36 days I would embark on a adventure that would take me into some of the most remote parts of Canada, but also test my physical limitations.
