Our Adventure Biker: Peter Brother on his Journey through the Americas
From the Yukon to Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
Peter Brother, one of our Toronto Bruce Trail Members, will give his slide show presentation outlining his 20-month adventure, cycling 13,000 km. through the Americas. Starting in Kluane Junction in the Yukon Peter travelled to the southern-most city in the world, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.
Peter turned 70 while on his journey and he hopes to inspire others to follow their dreams. He taught meditation and yoga in Mexico, Nicaragua and Peru, visited Machu Picchu, trekked in the Cordillera Blanca, trekked in the 2nd deepest canyon in the world and visited one of the few glaciers that are still growing. He met many amazing travelers and the people of Latin America – friendly people everywhere he went.
Come and listen to his stories of adventure and see some of the most beautiful scenes of Latin America.
We will also be planning a pub visit after the presentation to continue the event. Attendees will be polled to decide the location, then possibly a visit to Shoeless Joes across the street for refreshments and further discussion. This will allow you to meet and question Peter about his past and future adventures in more detail. Keep abreast of this event through E-Notes.
All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” -T. E. Lawrence
