Last winter, four cyclists rode their fat bikes 600 kilometers through Northern Ontario’s polar bear country, from the Attawapiskat First Nation to Smooth Rock Falls. Their trip was entirely self supported, despite the uniquely challenging terrain and temperatures well below freezing. As it turns out, the group couldn’t sit around idly for long after finishing that journey.
Last month, Buck Miller, Ryan Atkins, and Eric Batty set out to tackle the 721-kilometer Wapusk Trail from Peawanuck, Ontario, to Gillam, Manitoba. They’ll be putting together a full-length film from their journey this fall, but in the meantime have released a short one-minute trailer and a selection of photos to keep us entertained. Check it out below.
If you haven’t watched it already, make sure to check out the group’s James Bay Descent film, which is one of our favourites! Stay tuned for more coverage on their Wapusk Trail expedition.
