55. The Lost Elephant

The Lost Elephant, previously known as the Kootenay Gravel Grinder, explores the bikepacking paradise of the Rocky Mountain Trench here in the East Kootenays. Not for the faint of heart, this route of just over 500km and 10,300m of ascent will test your mettle. In this episode, we chat with the organizers of this beast of a route to get some background and hear the stories of the evolution of this event which starts in Cranbrook.
