Starting at the End of the Road

Words by // Photography by Nita Breibish

With an estimated 64% of total roads in the US being paved and just under 40% in Canada it comes to pass that many of the worlds most beautiful spots are not accessible with the comfort afforded by a smooth asphalt surface. So, for us, it’s making more and more sense to spend time where the pavement ends.

About

I’m a Canadian writer, adventure motorcyclist and world traveller of British and Libyan descent. I’ve spent the past two and a half years travelling the globe by motorcycle as one-half of We Love Motogeo, following a route that makes little sense to anyone else, while supporting our non-profit organization, the Lost for Good Project. I’ve been chased by all manner of animal, detained as a spy in North Africa and waited out a hurricane in the bowels of a ferry. While I’m no spy (honestly), I am a lover of decent coffee and great yarns sewn around a campfire.

    Looks like fun!

    While I’m not a rider, I always thought this trans-America trail looked like a blast: http://www.transamtrail.com/.

      Hey Morgan!

      It was a blast – the views were great and we were completely alone on the trail (except for the occasional herd of cows or horses).

      The Transam trail looks pretty awesome – I’m finding out more and more about these epic off-road routes like Can2Mex (http://bit.ly/k6BIxv) and WABDR (http://www.wabdr.com/). I want to get the skills up to try both of these in the next few years…
