Wrap Up Video for the Green Ride for Green Jobs

December 20, 2019

Zac Wagman, PLT Canada Green Jobs manager, cycled across Canada this summer on a wooden bike, meeting young people who call the outdoors their office. He rode a beautiful wooden bike made in Montreal by SFI-certified company Picolo Velo. His brother Nick accompanied him the entire way for moral and physical support. Together, they rode over 9,125 km, spent 130 days on the road, over 445 hours in the saddle, across 6 times zones, through 100 communities, and met over 300 youth who call the outdoors their office.
