Safety

Chris is biking solo and unsupported from Vancouver to St. John’s. This means he will have no support van driving in front or behind him and no other cyclists will be accompanying him at any point during the ride. A solo and unsupported ride across Canada requires significant planning and safety precautions.

As the May departure date approaches, this page will serve the following purposes:

  • list all precautions Chris is taking, to let his family, friends and others know that his safety is a top priority
  • to encourage other cyclists to be safe and offer advice to cyclists who are planning a similar trip
  • to allow others who have completed a similar bike trip to offer their advice to Chris by contacting him.
