Discovering the B.C. That I Travelled as a Girl

Two sides of a triangle from Victoria, to Jasper, then Canyon B.C.
1,534 km (953 miles) over 22 days from July 11, 2012 to August 1, 2012
By Lorraine Nygaard

"When I was a girl, my family would pile into the station wagon and drive through the Kootenays to Canyon, with stops in every little city to visit an aunt or uncle, cousins or second cousins. Major fruit-buying on the way home, canning and jam-making, swims in Osoyoos or Shuswap Lake, drinking water from clear rivers. I look forward to experiencing that, though I know these places will have changed a lot since I was young..."



TransAmerican Travelin'

'Tales of an Adventure and the Fulfillment of a Dream'

"It was some cold winter day about five or so years ago when I decided that I didn't like much where my life was going. I wasn't headed towards anything particularly bad or anything, but probably a quiet life with no real excitement. I imagine I'd be happy, but never had any good stories to tell. Coming to this realization motivated me, and I knew immediately that I needed to control the trajectory of where I was headed. A bit of a melodramatic quarter life crisis if you will. I quickly slapped together some half-assed list of things to do in life or, as some people call it, a bucket list. This list amounted to somewhere around eighty objectives ranging from stepping foot on every continent to witnessing the northern lights. But there was one that stood out significantly from the rest. One that struck a chord in me like none of the other 79 came close to doing. Number 53. Ride a bicycle from one end of the United States to the other. What was it that made this resonant in me more than all the others? To this day, I'm still not entirely sure..."

Alpine Travels and Tall Tales From Switzerland and France
2,280 km (1,417 miles) over 42 days from June 9, 2012 to July 20, 2012

"You know how it is? There are definite signs that it's getting closer to go-time... 1. You poke your head in the fridge and all you see is, well, not much. It's slim pick'ins in there. Why should I stock up when I'll be leaving soon? Crap, there's nothing to eat in this house! Well, to be fair, there IS ice cream in the freezer. Rum raisin Haggen Daz, my favorite. Well, I like Strawberry Haggen Daz too, and chocolate. Mango, too, is tasty... ...but I'm talking about the fridge here! 2. The countdown reaches single digits. WOOO-HOOO!"



Say hi to the elephants, and hope the weather improves

An expedition to find Noah's Ark
119 days from June 13, 2012 to October 9, 2012

"IT WAS in that cultural wasteland between dawn and the first cup of coffee that I wondered if there might really be a Mount Ararat. And, if so, where it might be. A man with too little on his mind needs no greater incentive to start planning a bike tour. And, yes, there is a Mount Ararat. I realise you knew that all along but, truthfully, I had gone through life without giving it much thought. If there was one, it could stay in that department that contains Australia and Patagonia and much of northern Asia: places I know are there but see no reason to visit. Except that now I felt an urge to go..."

The Impending Solace

Enchantment and Madness In the Heart of Appalachia
1,098 miles (1,767 km) over 10 days from June 27, 2009 to July 6, 2009
By Rich Haubert

"But the real draw - the thing that called to me for weeks - was the impending solace. Even in the mad rush to get myself and the bike ready, I knew I would find peace there, and my soul would be recharged. Nauseating? Maybe, but the mountains really are magical - even those in the East, with so many people living close by. In stunningly-underpopulated Appalachia, avoiding cities is easy. Avoiding hillbillies - now that's a different ball of wax altogether..."
