In the summer of 1996, a father and his 13-year-old son embarked on a 3400 km bicycle tour across Canada. Affectionately known as "Manhood Training," this unique bonding experience became the inspiration for Ryan Correy to break away from convention and turn a passion for cycling into his purpose in life. The world's most extreme cycling challenges serve as an evolving proving ground for the young rider - including self-doubt on a solo tour to Arizona after high school, falling asleep and crashing into a cemetery gate on the grueling Race Across America ("The toughest sporting event in the world"), murder and robbery along the Pan American Highway ("The longest road in the world"), a near mountaintop helicopter rescue while traversing the infamous Tour Divide ("The longest mountain bike race in the world"), cashing in after being hit by a car in California, hallucinations and foot-crippling pain on a six-day, 20-hour stationary cycling world record attempt, and plenty more. "A Purpose Ridden" is an honest and often obsessive first-hand account of becoming one of Canada's most respected adventure cyclists. Ryan shares in great detail the sponsorship woes, the evolution of his ego, an admiration for flawed role model Lance Armstrong, the many accolades earned, family tragedy and, of course, the evolving relationship with his father, their fights, and friendships lost along the way. The path less travelled begins with a paternal taunt: "We're close enough to home. If you want, we can call your mother to come and pick you up now."

The first full-colour guidebook introducing backcountry cyclists to the exciting and increasingly popular world of bikepacking. On the morning of June 13, 2008, seventeen amateur cyclists converged on the YWCA in Banff, Alberta, for the inaugural grand départ of the Tour Divide. They had committed to race 4418 kilometres unsupported along the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, the longest off-road trail in the world. Their path would take them up and over 200,000 feet, across the Crown of the Continent, down forgotten forest service roads, all the way to a remote desert crossing at Antelope Wells, New Mexico. The event has since become an international lightning rod for a new niche of cycle touring known as "bikepacking," which is best described as the union of mountain biking and backpacking. Compared to asphalt touring, bikepackers traditionally operate in the backcountry, carry lighter loads and find solace in a more holistic approach to two-wheel travel: scouting their own routes, developing DIY gear projects and taking part in underground events like the Tour Divide. Follow along as veteran rider Ryan Correy (two-time finisher of the Tour Divide, founder of Bikepack Canada and author of A Purpose Ridden) pedals into the most popular national parks in the Canadian Rockies: Waterton, Kananaskis, Banff, Kootenay, Yoho and Jasper. The result is ten ambitious, multi-day routes complete with directional cues, detailed maps, a helpful Bikepacking 101 section, rich photography and personal stories that will stoke the curiosity of both the beginner and experienced backcountry rider.

During that time Neil was behind the counter, answering questions and giving advice to thousands of flyfishers, from wannabes to seriously talented anglers. Over the years, Neil learned a lot about fly-fishing, some of it by good example and some of it by bad. This book is a distillation of the best of that experience. One of the wonderful things about fly-fishing is that you have an opportunity to learn new things all the time.

Bears: Tracks through Time is an eclectic look at our relationship with these beautiful and sometimes frightful creatures with which we co-exist in the Canadian Rockies. As a result of our close cohabitation with bears, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies has accumulated a modest collection of art, artifacts and archival materials related to bears. This book features images and stories from the collection. The postcards sent to us from the past provide a compelling glimpse into our changing views of bears. This is neither an exhibition catalogue nor an exhaustive study of bears, but rather an assortment of bear tales and the people, images and artifacts related to those stories.
