I’m looking for a partner to do a ~5 day bikepacking trip in 2020.

My preference would be to do the trip on my full suspension trail bike and spend as much time on trails (vs roads, paved or gravel). Possible trips could be: Chilcotins, Oregon Timber Trail, Pemberton-Harrison, Sunshine Coast & beyond, etc.
I’ve been riding my whole life (recreationally) and mountain biking on the North Shore for 3 years. In the last few years I’ve bikepacked the Sunshine Coast (full suspension), the first 600km of the B.C. Epic 1000 (rigid), and a previous group ride on the Kettle Valley Railbed (rigid). At 42 years old and all around active I’m good to ride 12 hour days, but not a racer by any means.
Ideally you’re similarly self supported, independently equipped, have experience in wilderness, and can maintain your gear as issues arise.
A meet up ride (as conditions permit) to see if we’re on the same page would be a great start, if all goes well we can stoke the excitement for an epic adventure in this new year!
