Founder & Chief Pedaler
Growing up in the prairies of friendly Manitoba, Josh Bloomfield is passionate about sustainable travel, particularly the self propelled type. After realizing the world of Finance was not for him, he set off to travel the world in 2005. Over several years his travels took him to such places as Brazil to study capoeira, a Brazilian martial art/dance/music, a rural village in Japan, and to Cambodia where he interned at a non-profit and guided his first bike tour – a 3 week, 1000km educational tour of the country.
Realizing that travel had the ability to shift perspectives and “tread lightly,” he decided to test these ideas over 4,000km of pedalling following the Mekong river from Phnom Penh, Cambodia to the border of Tibet in China. The experience sealed his belief that a journey is truly about the people you meet and learn from along the way. Josh continues paying it forward, sharing stories about Vancouver and making new friends who join his bike tours.
He is particularly interested in First Nations topics, Pacific temperate rainforest ecology, and Vancouver’s food scene!
