A huge thanks to our sponsors and those who are helping to make this project happen!

Mountain Equipment Co-op awarded us an expedition support grant that allowed us to gear up in style for our journey.


Dumoulin helped us get our bulletproof Shwalbe Marathon tires and Tubus racks. Check out their blog for our practical touring tips throughout the expedition, which we’ll post each month.

A great shop on Cherrier and our first official sponsor. The Grand offered gift certificates for our fundraiser draws and mechanical expertise to get our bikes in top shape before our departure.


Pignon sur roues on Mont-Royal East helped us out with the finishing touches on our rides with some nice Bontrager full fenders, shimano SPD pedals, Avid brakes, tubes, brakepads and a wireless Cateye bike computer.  Thanks Patrice!

NRG Logo Logo-Yeti

Thanks to NRG, we got a sweet deal on Lucie’s Surly! Le Yéti did a great job handling all the details as the retail pick-up point for Lucie’s new ride. They also let us use the Yétimobile to help us move our stuff into storage. Thanks Robert!

Vélo espresso

Pat at Espresso gave us some nice bike bibs and a sweet front camera bag for Lucie. He also helped Lucie dial in her new ride with a new stem.


Pat from Cocotte gave us a brand new Alfredo messenger bag to raffle off. Julie won it at our draw at Vices et Versa a few days before we left.


Our favourite neighbourhood pub, Vices & Versa, hosted our farewell party and put up with us late into the night! They also donated $200 to help get us out of town.


Panasonic cycling caps… 1000 cycling caps…. Thanks Olivier for all of your enterprising ideas and feedback that helped get this project on its legs.
