Mike Brcic, the founder of Sacred Rides, never imagined he’d have the world’s #1 mountain bike tour company in the world.
All he really wanted to do was get paid to take people on awesome trails around British Columbia.
That was 21 years ago, and since, he’s not only grown his business to great heights, but he’s also been able to take people mountain biking all over the world (yes, including Greenland)!
Mike talks about how they pick destinations, where they find the guides, and what a trip entails and also discusses why anyone, even someone who has never ridden a mountain bike before, can go on a trip…and why they should.
Plus, Mike discusses the charity he has set up and of course, tells us his biggest travel mishap (which happened very far from Greenland!)
A lot of people bicycle ACROSS America. But that’s not what we’re talking about today.
You see Brian D’Aspice has done something a little different.
He’s bicycled AROUND America.
And the difference is about 9 THOUSAND miles!
Brian joins me today to chat about his trip, which he planned 90% of it in the first 30 minutes of having the idea! (the rest of the planning took over a year!)
He discusses his experiences raising money for charity, the amount he’s spent per day on accommodation (it’s impressive, even to me), and then we proceed to nerd out about all the stats he’s kept on his trip!
We’re releasing this as he is on his journey, so if you’re listening in real-time, make sure to see if you can’t meet up with him and ride a bit of his final routes!
