In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast, I have the chance to speak with Eric Betteridge and Jen Adams. Hailing from the Ottawa Capital Region, Eric and Jen have been bikepacking and adventuring all over the globe since at least the 1980s. More recently they have created an 800km bikepacking route that encircles the city of Ottawa and takes the rider through many historic areas that predate confederation. Join us on the journey of learning about The Log Driver's Waltz.
