Our route so far…

For those of you wondering where we’ve been for the last 2 and a half years: Also, postcard maps of our route can be found in the our route section of our website. We’ve also added a couple of new pages including our favourite photos (more coming soon) and videos. Advertisements

Vancouver

We arrived in north Vancouver early evening and took the opportunity to cycle over lion’s gate bridge and onto the famous sea wall around Stanley Park just in time to catch a beautiful sunset at third beach. The next day we cycled round the entire sea wall, from Lion’s Gate Bridge to downtown, around False…

BC Ferries

After cycling the Cassiar Highway, we decided to head back to the coast to catch the ferry from Prince Rupert on the mainland to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island, courtesy of George and Carol. We arrived in Prince Rupert in the early evening, and cooked up dinner at the marina at Cow Bay, the touristy…

Bulging tyres and cranky drivetrains

Hopeful that it would last out for a couple of weeks, we thought we’d save ourselves some money and order replacements on chainreaction. While we were at it we also ordered replacement chains. As we cycled on, the tyre bulges…

King’s Throne

If you have 24 hours to spare in Haines Junction, this is a great hike just 30km or so down the (beautifully smooth – American paved) road towards Haines. We decided at 5pm after lazing around at the Village Bakery all afternoon that we would quite like a day off the bikes, so blasted down…
