The Ride


Months of planning and I have finally confirmed the route.  A total of 15 days riding with one contingency day (which I am more than likely going to need!).

The following pages provide the info about each day’s ride, locations and stats. These may change on the day, there is no knowing if a logging road is closed, blocked by a landslide, impassable due to bears or cougar activity – I will probably need to freestyle a lot of it and hope the weather and condition of the bike go in my favour.
