The Start of a NEW ADVENTURE | First Day of our First Bikepacking Trip | Exploring Manitoulin Island
AND WE'RE OFF! After a couple months of prepping, we officially kick off the first day of bikepacking on our very first bike tour. It was a long travel day for us. We had a 3 hour drive up to Tobermory where we needed to catch the ferry, 2 hours on the Chi Cheemaun ferry to get to Manitoulin Island, and then a 13km bike ride to our accommodations for the night.To make things interesting, we got lost in a forest right before sun down, and had to find our way out before it got too late! Some fun facts about Manitoulin Island: 📍 It is the LARGEST freshwater island in the world 📍It has more than 100 inland lakes on it 📍 Many of the inland lakes also have tiny islands in them 📍 The people who live on this island are incredible, friendly, and kind Check out the series from the beginning: https://tinyurl.com/firstbiketour If you're interested in any of the product we're using, check them out below!
