On April 22nd I shot off with Caley Fox on an epic adventure – to get two tandem bikes across Canada, a full 7600 kms (4720 Mi). We set off with little training, with 2 very old hand me down heavy tandems (trying to pick up hitch hikers with), but with an attitude to take things as they came. The result was the stepping in of many strangers to house us, feed us, fix our bikes, and encourage us to keep going. Without the help of these strangers getting to the finish line would have been an entirely different story.
Watch our 77 second time lapse of cycling the entire transcanada below.

We stayed along the Trans-Canada highway for the most of the adventure, coming off only to avoid some heavy traffic. Every province welcomed us and helped when needed. Rainy day? A stranger offered the place to stay. Broken bike? A stranger pulls up with a wrench. Only peanut butter? A grandma stranger sends us away with homemade jam!
Through early morning sunrises and miles under our bikes we felt lucky to take in amazing scenery.
