Check out the story of a bike ride I did in 2011 through Western and Northern Canada.
I started my bike ride in Calgary with a quick side trip east to Drumheller and then crossed west to Banff and up to Jasper. From Jasper I went to Grand Prairie and then continued to the Northwest Territories. Reaching the Northwest Territories I rode as far north as Yellowknife. From Yellowknife I backtracked and then continued west. Reaching the Alaskan Highway in British Columbia I made my way to Watson Lake in the Yukon and then south down the Cassiar Highway back into BC. Along the Cassiar I did a side trip to Stewart, BC and Hyder, Alaska. Leaving Hyder I made my way to the Lava Bed Provincial Park, north of Terrace. From the Lava Bed Park I went to Terrace and then west to Prince Rupert. From Prince Rupert I took the ferry to Queen Charlotte Islands. After a week on the islands I took the ferry all the way south to Port Hardy, Vancouver Island. From Port Hardy I rode to Courtney to catch a ferry to the Sunshine Coast on the mainland. I rode along the Sunshine Coast into Vancouver. From Vancouver I took the ferry back to Vancouver Island and rode from Nanaimo to Tofino and then backtracked backed to Nanaimo. Back in Nanaimo I rode to Port Renfrew and then to Victoria. From Victoria I rode to catch the ferry to Salt Spring Island and caught the ferry back to Nanaimo and then caught my last ferry back to Vancouver to finish a 6,500 km bike ride. The ride took me 14 weeks less a day.

This epic 6,500 km bike ride was the beginning of a new obsession – To bicycle across Canada to the Canadian Arctic Ocean to the bottom of Argentina.
