Video: Casey Brown, Micayla Gatto & Georgia Astle Explore the Yukon in The Back Forty - Episode 4

Jan 13, 2021
by Martin Faubert-Smith  


After 2 weeks on the road and close to 2500 km's driven, the girls had finally reached the most northern part of the trip: Whitehorse. Driving this far made everyone realize how massive their home province is and was a real eye opener to the diversity of the landscape. Massive rounded mountain tops, large crystal clear lakes and a canvas of oranges and reds from the leaves slowly falling from the trees. 





The late summer temperatures we had in BC were now only a warm memory, we had entered into fall time in the Yukon and the riding got a lot chillier.










We could have spent another week or so exploring this beautiful area, but we had to reluctantly U-turn the trucks, and point them back south. It was a bitter end, but as we left, the sun set perfectly into our rear-view mirrors, like if it was telling us that we will be back one day.

 Hey guys! Thanks for the concern, I know it looks careless as it was released today but We did the trip back in September and followed ALL Covid restrictions and recommendations from the government at that time, NOW we’re all at home doing what the government has recommended- staying home. ✌????

 You and the whole team did an amazing job up here, you only spent 5 minutes in the coffee shop and bike shop. We hope you will be back and thank you for signing my daughters Boreale jersey.... it made her Holiday season one to remember.

 @Yukonrider29: What month was this? Looks like a beautiful time to do the trip with the leaves and probably less bugs than the summer Wink

 I'd love to go there some day. Are there any restrictions on the amount of people allowed on trails at any one time?

 We have 850km of single track in Whitehorse alone.... you rarely ever see anyone on our trails. The territory is larger than the state of California and has 38 000 people.
