Bio d’Olivier et Marie-Andrée

Marie-Andrée et Olivier font de leur vie une aventure, au point où même leurs proches ont parfois de la difficulté à suivre leur calendrier.

Du Kirghizstan à l’Inde en cyclo, ils cumulent de nombreux voyages en solo et en duo. Étant guides en tourisme d’aventure, ils parcourent l’Amérique à l’Europe, et font parfois un détour par l’Afrique afin de contempler le lever du soleil depuis le sommet du Kilimandjaro!

Ils vivent maintenant à temps partiel au Nunavik, suite à une expédition de longue durée que Marie-Andrée a faite en 2014: le Projet-Karibu (www.projet-karibu.com). Kangiqsualujjuaq est leur village d’accueil, où Olivier oeuvre comme agent de séjour pour parc Nunavik. On dit d’eux qu’ils ne font qu’un avec l’espace et le temps.  Carpe diem, ou saisir toutes les opportunités, est leur devise.

Olivier a vécu ses premières grandes aventures il y a plus de dix ans en parcourant l’Afrique australe à vélo. Ces jours-ci, il se promène dans les montagnes enneigées du Grand Nord québécois, entre la rédaction de deux poèmes et quelques photos d’aurores boréales.

Marie-Andrée prend les vagues qui viennent à elle et se promène selon le remous, une fois à vélo, l’autre en rando.  On la retrouve sur l’île de Baffin, comme en Asie, souriante et pétillante, à la rencontre des peuples qui sillonnent sa route.  Ses voyages l’ont menée à découvrir des coins reculés de la planète ou à bourlinguer sur le vieux continent.

Ils font maintenant partie d’une équipe de trois; toujours accompagnés de leur plus fidèle ami, Ulysse, un bébé malamute musclé et vif qui aime courir dans la neige.

Notre trio d’aventuriers nordiques partagera leur quotidien influencé par la culture inuit, l’infinie blancheur de la toundra et les nuits d’aurore boréale.

    Anticosti

    ***The Anticosti will be back in stock as a complete bike (framesets available at the moment) in Spring 2021. It will be offered in 700c version with a Sram Rival groupset. Be the first informed of the availability by subscribing to the newsletter. Any questions, please contact us.*** When you venture on the less traveled roads of the backcountry, sometimes, the beautiful road becomes much more bumpy than what was predicted. The asphalt becomes gravel, and the gravel literally becomes an off-road trail. It is for this kind of adventure that the Anticosti was created. The Anticosti bike is built with a bespoke selection of Reynolds 725 steel tubing, thinned where it is needed to reduce weight. A generous clearance allows you to install 27.5x2.1 or 700x45 tires with fenders. Finally, you will find all the necessary mounts to carry the equipment for a night in the tent, or for a more ambitious globe-trotting trip project. Do not let your current bike limit your desire to explore. Take the path you want with the Panorama Anticosti.
