PODCAST EPISODE 28 - Meaghan Hackinen talks about the highs and lows of bike packing and ultra-endurance racing

Bike packing is fast becoming the chosen activity for a lot of endurance athletes during and after covid but Meaghan has been bike packing before many knew it was a thing with her first major tour in 2009 riding the Pacific Coast (Terrace, BC, to Mulege, Baja California Sur)

Since then she has accomplished many great feats with some of her biggest being her outright win and setting Women’s FKT at the 2021 BC Epic 1000 plus her win and 741km record ride in the 2019 24hr TT World Championships.

Her story goes a lot deeper than just riding her bike as Meaghan is a published writer with her first book being shortlisted for the 2020 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize (Non-Fiction) and the 2020 Alberta Book Publishing Award (Trade Non-Fiction). She is due to release her 2nd book in 2023.
