Ryan Correy is one of Canada’s most respected adventure cyclists. His passion on two wheels began at the age of 13, when he and his father embarked on a series of cross-country tours around North America. The Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership valedictorian has since taken on many of world’s toughest cycling challenges, including a 25,000 km tour from Alaska to Argentina, the grueling Race Across America, 4,418 km of remote mountain terrain on the Tour Divide, and a crippling 6 day 20 hour stationary cycling record attempt. The list goes on. In between planning the next adventure (the Tour Divide in June 2015), Ryan regularly speaks to groups on endurance and how to turn passion into purpose. He also serves as the Fueling Guru for Hammer Nutrition Canada – intrusting hard-earned sport nutrition advice to amateur and professional athletes alike.
I met Ryan while competing in the Race Across Oregon. He was my competition, but after chatting with him on a hot, dry day in Eastern Oregon after riding 300 miles with 200 more to go, I realized what an amazing and interesting person he is. We haven’t seen each other since the finish of that race, but have stayed in touch. I’ve followed him as he raced across America, went for a world record attempt and became a semi-pro mountain biker.
One reason I wanted to bring him on the show is because of his new book, A Purpose Ridden. I want to help him share it with the world, not that he needs help, but because I think you will find it inspirational and empowering.
