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.
