The Escape

When I started this post I thought it was going to be a lazy one. Oh I know I’ll just post a cool mountain bike video that someone else made and let people enjoy that.

After watching the video I realised how inspiring it was. Ok British Columbia is pretty big and synonymous with mountain biking, but still these guys had to ride from location to location carrying their kit with them. Great video and some stunning locations, if only we all had the time and the locations on our doorsteps for a road trip like this one.

Need to plan something like this some day…

Now the lazy bit, read the bit below and then grab a drink and settle back and watch the video.


Each town in British Columbia seems to offer better singletrack than the last one visited. To prove what’s out there Dave Roth and Seb Kemp cycled, on mountain bikes, from Whistler around the Strait of Georgia, stopping in Squamish, the Sunshine Coast, Powell River, Cumberland, Hornby Island, Parksville, Duncan and Saturna Island.

This trip is about the pleasure of the road and the thrill of the trails. We want to show everyone that, yes, nothing is easy, but the rewards of seeking soothe all hardship.

We want to remind the world that adventure is on your own doorstep, if only you get off the couch to seek it. It is about celebrating the world we ride within. It is also about the communities and individuals that dare imagine, build, and nourish so that mountain biking can flourish.
