A four-day Sea-To-Sky journey using alternative means of transport and a unique approach to bikepacking.

An Englishman, a Scotsman and 3 Canadians walk into a bar. While this might seem to contain the makings of a joke centred around the monarchy, Brexit, or possibly a sack of potatoes, it does not. They are too wet, muddy, and tired for any of that. They simply want to relax and enjoy a beer. Still, in the throws of the pandemic, they sit on the patio, sheltered from the rain but not the damp cold, stewing in their chamois and water-logged shoes, sipping their brews.

Deciding they should probably peel off these soggy layers and get into some dry clothes, each man pulls out the most important piece of luggage they have brought on this 4-day journey between Squamish- Whistler-Pemberton. No, not the cameras to document the journey to traverse the Sea-to-Sky on electric mountain bikes. Nor the GPS devices to make sure they don’t miss a single second of logging this trip onto Strava. The most important item removed from their pockets is a thin piece of plastic that can buy all of the necessary of equipment in a single swipe… a credit card.
