Reconnecting With Canada: Episode 4
Canadian Motorcycle Journey
In this fourth episode of "Reconnecting With Canada: The North" attached above, motorcyclists Joe Lloyd and Paul Mondor explore Northern Alberta, which is a mix of cold temperatures, winter conditions, and northern Canadian culture.
Featuring ice fishing on Alberta’s largest lake, the team tries their luck at catching pike at minus 30 below. It’s then back on the BMW F800GS adventure motorcycles and on to Canada’s oil producing capital Fort McMurray, with a much needed rest before tackling one of Canada’s least traveled ice roads.
The first of two major winter roads (ice roads) begins 60km’s north of Fort McMurray. The riders prepare themselves for their greatest challenge yet. Between rough snow patches, empty roads, and slow speed crashes, this is the start of the serious winter hardships.
"Reconnecting with Canada: The North" is an adventure lived and seen from behind the visors of these two brave motorcyclists, Lloyd and Mondor.
The tale is told from the unique and unreal perspective of these two motorcycle riders exploring Northern Canada on icy and snowed in roads.
These brave motorcyclists will face conditions and deal face to face with Mother Nature as she will most likely throw all she has in their ways as they discover. Not only will these riders observe the geographical wonders of Northern Canada, but also its amazing people who makes it a place of wonder and beauty and danger known the world over.
Follow the Curbsyde team as they tackle winter conditions, freezing temperatures, and mental obstacles to ride a 10,000km motorcycle journey to Canada’s infamous ice road to Tuktoyaktuk.
