Bike Further, Eat Closer

If you’re looking for some fun on Vancouver Island this Labour Day weekend, you might want to check out the latest camping-biking-fundraiser from

Chelsea Trousdell, a student at Emily Carr, and Marla Temoin, a recent graduate of the University of Victoria are gearing up for an intercontinental quest to raise awareness for climate change. They will ride their bikes 30,000 km - from Victoria, BC to Argentina, around South America, up the East Coast of the US, and across Canada back to Victoria. As if that wasn’t inspiring enough, these gals will also follow a 100-mile diet for their entire trip.

Bookmark their website, because they will be blogging their adventures once they’ve hit the road.
