Before his untimely death from cancer in 2018, veteran rider and passionate cyclist Ryan Correy (two-time finisher of the Tour Divide, founder of Bikepack Canada and author of A Purpose Ridden) pedalled his way through the most popular national parks in the Canadian Rockies in order to complete his work on this unique guidebook. Featuring routes in Waterton, Kananaskis, Banff, Kootenay, Yoho, and Jasper, Bikepacking in the Canadian Rockies will take biking enthusiasts on Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert journeys in the following locations:
The result of Correy’s remarkable dedication is an unparalleled collection of ten ambitious, multi-day routes complete with directional cues, detailed maps, a helpful Bikepacking 101 section, rich photography, and personal stories that will stoke the curiosity of both the beginner and the experienced backcountry rider.
Ryan Correy was one of Canada’s most accomplished adventure cyclists. In addition to writing about these adventures in two books, A Purpose Ridden and Bikepacking in the Canadian Rockies, Ryan regularly spoke to professional groups about turning passion into purpose and was actively involved in various forms of charity work. He was also the founder of Bikepack Canada (bikepack.ca) and was a tireless promoter of cycling and outdoor adventure. Ryan died in April 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer.
