Loaded for the Long Haul

Here is one loaded-up trike, piloted by one of the world’s most capable backcountry adventurers, Christian Breier. This is from a trek he made through Canada and Alaska on a German-made Pirol recumbent tadpole tricycle, a machine very well suited for heavy loads and ultra long distances. Pirol’s suspension design makes rugged journeys like this possible. Behind, he pulls a Radical Design Cyclone trike trailer. Those red side panniers are waterproof Ortliebs. Christian’s motto is to burn fat, not fuel.

Loaded, with everywhere to go!

    Hi Steve

    Looks like I will go back to the Yukon & Alaska in 2012 with a recumbent quad !

    Greetings from booooooring Germany

    Wow, that’s great Chris. I envy your touring the Yukon and Alaska, both places I have dreamed about visiting for much of my life, but just haven’t made the time to get that far north, which is a shame really, because I live on the same land mass. So you will be riding the Utah Trikes quad conversion on that trip? The one that uses a TerraTrike as the base? I looked at the link you sent, and that surely appears to have much room for storage behind the seat. Email a photo when you get the rig ready for the trip, and if you have a page on your website devoted to your new wheels, please send that link too so readers can learn about your preparations.
