THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE


Adventure is just up the road.

For us, bikes are life.

They steal our money and reward our souls. They introduce us to our best friends. They expose our weaknesses and reveal our strengths. They’re an analogue compass for an organic world.

We wouldn’t be going anywhere without the friggin’ things. 

So, on May 25, 2019, 10 friends head north on a 10 day, 2200km ride with little more than the lycra on our backs, the credit cards in our pockets, and the need to find out: “How far can we go?”

We’re in for the ride of our lives.

The Crew

The group is composed of six guys who grew up riding mountain bikes together at Camp Fortune over the past two decades, and four dudes from Whistler who never turn down a good time.

By Name:

Alex Conlon, Jamie Blades, Mark Taylor, Matt Tirrell, Will Cadham, Quinn Lanzon, Huw Thomas, Dave Kenworthy, and Braedyn Kozman.


But, why?

Skinny Tires, Fat Hearts

At the core of our crew are six guys who’ve been riding bikes together for nearly two decades. Though we’ve laid down serious miles on the trails over the years, across the country and planet, this will be our first adventure on skinny tires. Luckily, road biking is super easy.

Our mission is two-fold: to have fun and to share our love for riding everywhere we go, without being preachy or pricks.

We just think bikes are good for you, for a good time, for life. No big deal.
