About This Epic Adventure

Phase 1

To bike west across Canada from St John’s Newfoundland through Edmonton Alberta up to our most northern highway, The Dempster Highway to the village of Tuktoyaktuk Northwest Territories. 

I planned on starting this once in a life time ride on December 31, 2019 in the middle of a Canadian winter.  

I was actually able to start November 12, 2019.  I ended up adding a lot of extra kilometers in Atlantic Canada causing me only to get to Kingston, Ontario on the first day of spring – March 19.  Upon reaching Kingston I had pedalled 4,900 km’s over the 2019-20 winter.

The plan was to reach Tuktoyaktuk.  Covid-19 has put a fair amount of uncertainity in reaching the Arctic at this time.  Hopefully at the time of updating this description I will be able to fly to Alaska upon reaching Calgary AB.  From Calgary I will either fly to Alaska or head straight to Vancouver British Columbia.

 

Phase 2

Phase 2 of this ride has me riding much of the Pacific coast of the US and zigzagging myself to the bottom of the world in Ushuaia, Argentina.  My route brings me through all 24 countries in North, Central and South America (including the Island of Trinidad).  This phase of the ride should be completed in about two years.  

A small note of interest; upon entering Mexico and continuing through Central and South America there will two areas of huge interest that I will actively pursue through any and all participating countries.  One I will be looking for organizations/projects involved in reforestation of rainforest and jungle and the second area of interest will be to visit as many sea turtle nesting sites as possible – season permitting (nesting or hatching).  You can read more about some of my interests on my Passion Projects page.

This epic adventure should last about three years in total and have me pedal at least 55,000 kilometres in total distance.
