The Bikepacking Canada Adventure
In the summer of 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, cancellations of flights to Europe and the postponement of ultra-distance races, I decided to embark on a bikepacking adventure that would take me through the mountains of British Columbia to the northern city of Whitehorse and then east across the Prairies and back home. In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast, I invited my past guest and occasional co-host, Adam Hugill, to interview me for the first time on my podcast. In this interview, Adam dives into my past to find out how I got into bike touring, what prompted me to make the podcast, and then finally into the details surrounding my 29 day, 5500km Bikepacking Canada Adventure. Enjoy the show.
Keep on pedalling.
