BBR18 Route Guide | Daily updates
2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the battle of the Medak Pocket, which was the Canadian Army’s most intense combat since the Korean War.To commemorate this important part of our history, we will bring Canada back to Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia. The ride will take our cyclists to places of significance to Canadian Armed Forces members and their families who served in the Balkan theatre, culminating at the site of the battle of the Medak Pocket.
Through each leg of the journey we will honour the service and sacrifice of those brave Canadians who fought there; the 23 Canadians who paid the ultimate sacrifice in the Balkans; and the thousands whose service left them forever changed with the physical and mental scars of the conflict. Additionally, one of the unique and very special aspects of BBR18 is that the cyclists will have the privilege of riding with Veterans who served in these operations.
