Stoking our adventure conversation

Your trusted source for Canadian bikepacking routes, stories, events, gear & beer. Check out our weekly podcast and annual summit in Canmore.

30. Confessions of a New Bikepacker

Chatting with Sarah Hornby (of Canmore, Alberta) on trading in her triathlon bike for a knobby tires and a view of the Rockies. We get into the anxiety and elation of learning to mountain bike, overcoming a fear of bears, why you should use a sleeping bag liner, and more. A conversation that rookie bikepackers will definitely appreciate.

24. BC Epic 1000

Chatting with organizer Lennard Pretorius (of Kamloops, British Columbia) on how the southern BC event came to be. Lennard also provides a great description of the region, a tease for his Buckshot offshoot, and some insight into new collaborative efforts. I apologize in advance for the muffled audio. It is an informative listen, nonetheless.
