Hi there,

I’m Nick

a corporate lawyer seeking adventure on two wheels

Come ride with me

My Adventure

Call me bonkers, but in Summer 2023 I set off on my bicycle from the Canadian Arctic Ocean (Tuktoyaktuk, NWT), to the Pacific Ocean (Victoria, BC), and then to the Atlantic Ocean (St. John’s, NL). I biked across Canada from coast-to-coast-to-coast, travelling through ten provinces, two territories, and twelve capital cities.

I finished my ride in Autumn 2023 and am currently in the process of having it certified for two world records.

Support My Ride

I rode in support of RAVEN Trust, Canada’s leading Indigenous legal defence fund.

My fundraising goal was $1 for every kilometre I rode. I rode 12,608.8 km, and raised more than $17,000!

I can’t thank each donor enough. Your support motivated me to keep pedalling, even when the going got tough! If you haven’t donated yet, it’s not too late! Click the link below ↓

As I travelled, I shared photos and videos from my ride on my Instagram feed.

From the Arctic to the Pacific to the Atlantic, my route covered countless kilometres – well, at least it felt countless. My GPS recorded 12,608.8 km in total. Learn more about my route here.

Background to my ride

Wondering why I swapped a cushy lawyer’s life in London for a nomadic bicycle life? Me too.

Between fending off bears and aggressive drivers, I still manage to check my emails (#lawyerhabits).
