October 21.14 – Cycle Challenge Canada

A few months back we posted Ollie’s gravel tourer, that we had built him for his attempt of the world record circumnavigation of Vancouver Island.

Well, we are pleased to say that he got the record!

It was a distance of 1436 miles on a combination of road and logging tracks and trails, with 151,763ft of climbing in 15 days. If you are interested to read more, there is loads of info and pictures on the Cycle Challenge Canada Facebook page.

For the trip we built Ollie a disc equipped, thru axle’d 853 gravel tourer, featuring a totem paint design inspired by the Pacific Northwest. The bike performed flawlessly, rolling with speed and comfort and eating up the roughest of the logging roads. On asking how the ride itself was Ollie had this to say:

“It was certainly even harder than I expected, and that’s saying a lot! Not only did I get lost a few times in the pouring rain at the same time as having popped tyres and bears in the vicinity, the weather also swung right the way to the other extreme.”

The challenges that the road throws at you are often unexpected and sometimes even defeating, but its that potential of what lies out in front of you around that next corner, that however difficult that ride was today, you can’t help but get straight back on it and see just what else it has to offer tomorrow…
