Zac Wagman, our “green rider,” is finally crossing the finish line on his wooden bike after his epic cross?Canada journey from Victoria that began in May. Zac has biked over 9,000 km this summer, visiting more than 100 communities and sharing countless stories of youth working in green jobs in the great outdoors.
