Mountain biking 300km across the Canadian Rockies is a challenge for even a seasoned athlete, but for a man who was told he would never walk again, it's a miracle.
Mountain hiking, rock climbing, & mountain biking were all activities that school teacher Mark Ivancic or "Mr. I" as known by his students, thrived on. Until the unexpected happened in 2019, when Mark had a stroke that left him bedridden and paralyzed on his left side.
The outlook was bleak, simply walking again was looking doubtful. But anyone who knows Mr. I, knows he doesn't go down without a fight. Through months of grueling rehabilitation and battling depression he regained his ability to walk, ride, and inspire.
He is now set to ride his bike on the 300km trek from Jasper to Banff, a route full of steep rocky mountain inclines and unpredictable weather. To prove to himself and inspire others that limitations are only the ones you believe about yourself.
