Jill Heinerth and Robert McClellan set out in the summer of 2013 to ride their bicycles across Canada to share their We Are Water Project documentary film. At 48 and 56 years old respectively, it was a daunting task to complete without a support team. Carrying all their camping gear, food and supplies, they pedaled recumbent bicycles across the Rocky Mountains, over the endless prairies and all the way to St. Johns Newfoundland. Facing snow, rain, crashes and setbacks, they journeyed on and met people in small groups, large audiences, kid's camps and cafe think tanks, spreading the message about protecting our water resources. The four month project crossed almost 7000 km of challenging terrain and fulfilled a lifelong dream for the couple.
