In this episode of the Bikepack Adventures podcast, I finally get a chance to chat with Marie-Pierre Savard. Marie-Pierre has been an adventure bike enthusiast for over 10 years. It all started with her first extreme solo trip to Central Asia and since then, her way of thinking outside the box guides the decisions of her big and small adventures! In August 2020, she was the first cyclist to ride Gatineau to Percé on the Quebec Bikepacking Traverse. She is also the instigator of Les Fines Garnottes, a women’s, trans and non-binary gravel and adventure bike collective based in Montreal. In 2022 she rode the Huracan 300 in Florida as training for The Log Driver's Waltz Grand-Départ, where she set the new women's FKT. Even with her bikepacking experience in more than a dozen countries, mostly riding solo, Marie-Pierre sees herself as an adventurer more than an athlete, where achievement and experience is more important than performance.
