Quebec to Newfoundland

September 27, 2019
I leave Ontario and skirt around the metropolises of Montreal and Quebec City, and work my way up the eastern side of the St Lawrence seaway. ...

The Prairie

September 17, 2019
As I head out of BC, through the Crowsnest Pass, I take one last look at the magnificent Rocky Mountains, and steel myself for the vast prairie ahead. I expect to see harvesting in full swing, but recent rains have bought that to a standstill, and machines lie idle while the...

Return from Tuk

September 12, 2019
The return from Tuktoyaktuk was reasonably uneventful. I hate traveling the same road twice and had braced myself mentally for the return journey to Dawson City. Even so, knowing what’s around every corner always has my head in a different space. The ride becomes a chore. ...

I’m away from Dawson City early. I want to give myself plenty of time, as I’ve heard so many varying reports on the condition of the road. The first few km give me a taste of the real beauty that lies ahead. I had no idea when I planned this ride that I would strike the ...

Vancouver to 'the Dempster’

September 6, 2019

Mongolia

June 28, 2019
Border Crossing day started early with a ride in the rain. By the time we reached the Mongolian border, the sun had returned and it was 30 degrees. We began the long tedious process of getting through Russian border control and customs, before we could repeat on the Mongolia...

Lake Baikal

June 25, 2019
With our new tyres fitted we head for Lake Baikal. After thousands of kilometres of straight road, we enjoy rolling hills and switch backs, along the shores of the huge lake. To us it’s a welcome relief from the boredom of the Trans Siberia Highway. However for some t...

Irbit to Irkutsk

June 18, 2019
Yet more days spent on the Trans Siberian Highway. This 11,000 km stretch of road, that links Saint Petersburg in the west to Vladivostok in the east, had until recently vast unpaved sections that were often unusable by anything other than 4 wheel drive vehicles. Today it i...
