Acclaimed endurance cyclist and Rocky Mountain Books author Ryan Correy died of cancer on April 28, 2018 at his home. As an indefatigable promoter of cycling and outdoor adventure, he founded Bikepack Canada and recently revised his 2015 RMB memoir A Purpose Ridden, to include his marriage and updates on his extensive career as a long-distance competitor throughout the Americas. Due this summer, his posthumous Bikepacking in the Canadian Rockies (RMB $25) will share his passion for some of his favourite backcountry cycling trails. It outlines ten ambitious, multi-day routes complete with directional cues, detailed maps and a "Bikepacking 101"; section for newbies.
