In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast I talk with Trevor Browne. Growing up in Western Canada, Trevor was intrigued with the concept of bike touring from a very young age. Trevor spent a lot of time mountain biking the in Rockies, and even took jobs that would allow him to spend more time on his bike. In 2008 he went on an epic journey and cycled 7600 km across Canada. The very next year, he took on the Tour Divide and was one of the first Canadians to complete it. In 2015 Trevor rode the Paris-Brest-Paris bike race, one of the world's most highly regarded ultra-distance bike races. In the years after, Trevor started Messkit Magazine, a magazine aimed at combining all his passions into one product: photography, food and biking. This hasn't stopped Trevor from finding time to keep on pedalling. More recently he rode the Alberta Rockies 700 and the BT700 in Ontario.
