In this episode of the Bikepack Adventures podcast, Meaghan and I talk about bikepacking in the Canadian Shield region of Ontario and Quebec. Over the 24 days she spent in the area, Meaghan rode somewhere close to 2000km, riding the Loop des Loups, Canadian Shield 400 and Log Driver’s Waltz, setting overall FKTs on the CS400 and Log Driver’s Waltz. I was so grateful to have Meaghan as the keynote speaker of the inaugural Canadian Shield Bikepacking Summit, and for all the opportunity to talk about bikes over the 3 weeks she stayed at my house with my family.


Thank you to my newest supporters:
