When looking for a gravel adventure epic enough for an Outskirts sequel, Gus Morton settled on Canada’s Trans-Labrador Highway.
At 2,187 km, the Trans-Labrador Highway is a remote stretch of asphalt and gravel. Filmmaker Gus Morton describes it as “one of the longest, most remote gravel roads in the world”. Yet it’s probably not known, never mind familiar to many Canadians.
Four riders set out to cover the daunting distance together. While riding, they connect with each other, the land, and the Canadians they meet in towns and villages dotting the route.
“Never have I met a group of people as open, warm and welcoming at the Labradorians,” says Dan Craven, one of the four riders.
“Once again, I feel so lucky to be able to pedal my bike and see the world in slow motion – and spend time getting to know people in the best way I know how.”
