This post is for anyone who is interested in reading about my North American road trip. Coined #Zartusacan (which stands for “Zoe and Allister’s Road Trip of the USA and Canada”, if you were wondering), this ten-week motorcycle tour of the west of the USA and Canada was a dream that LincsGeek and I worked hard for two years to make happen.

With 10,000 miles ridden in two countries a long way from home, these blog posts will (hopefully) give you a taste of what I got up to, together with information that might be useful to anyone wishing to do something similar.

We took this trip in May to July 2016.
