In Episode 050 of Bike Tour Adventures, I have the chance to talk with Arie Hoogerbrugge. He recently started an epic bike tour adventure in St. John’s, Newfoundland and will be riding approximately 55,000km over the next 3 years as he makes his way west across Canada and then north to the top of Canada before turning around and heading south for the next couple years. The thing that makes Arie’s adventure especially interesting is that he decided to start in the winter, so that he could have the full experience of riding across Canada and to test his mettle against Canadian winter. This is a true story of man vs. nature.
