With the Biking Across Canada website, our aim is to promote long-distance bicycle touring in Canada. During the research phase for our trip we bounced around the internet looking at different blogs for route ideas, food ideas, sleep ideas, gear ideas, weather ideas, headwind ideas, highway-shoulder ideas, bike tool ideas, clothing ideas… the information was all scattered about. We thought why not bring it all together? Hence the creation of this site. Our focus is on maintaining a Journal Directory where we aggregate touring blogs so that others may easily research past trips.
