Ever dreamed of cycling Canada’s far north? This new bike touring documentary might be just your thing.
Riding North tells the tale of 5 young Canadians as they cycle 1,900km of remote roads between Whitehorse, Yukon and Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories.
In the film, they show the joys and routines of bike touring as well as the challenges. Be prepared for a fair amount of swearing as the cyclists encounter a variety of problems from bike breakdowns to lack of food.
“I didn’t know that there was a 500 kilometer stretch of gravel between grocery stores, didn’t know about the herds of wild bison, aggressive bears and bugs that ripped flesh from your skin or the fact that we would have to pump water from creeks for over a week,” said Steve Langston.
He was one of 3 in the group to complete the trip. The other two chose to finish early because of the challenging conditions.
The documentary will be broadcast on Canadian channel RadX (available on MTS & Shaw) on January 29 at 9:00 Eastern. For everyone else, the one-hour film can be downloaded via the Riding North website for $7.
