Bikepacking YouTuber, Sir Bike Alot has cycled many places such as Canada, America, Europe, and even Japan. Recently he began to focus on off-road adventures in BC, but after COVID axed his 2020 world-tour plans, he redirected his energy into creating bikepacking related YouTube content.
The gear that I used on this trip is explained in this video

Water and food are plentiful as the route passes through towns every other day. I would recommend carrying three days’ worth of food at a given time and up to 4 liters of water at any given time. Consider bringing a water filtration device or tablets to drink from rivers and creeks.
There are lots of provincial and regional campsites along the way, which cost about $15 Canadian per night. Wild campsites are also an option in some places, however, it is not technically legal.
There is a lot of wildlife on this route and it can be quite remote in some places. Bring bear spray and practice good camping etiquette so bears are not attracted to your site.
Weather can vary significantly, so be prepared for high and low temperatures and rain. We experience some snow in the first few days of the trip in June.
