Staast David Elliot Vanderhoop took off early one morning with a plate of food as an offering. He was headed to “the cradle of Creation,” he says, with a prayer in his heart. He went to pray about the ideas he had for an independent business on his home of Haida Gwaii, making offerings for the manifestation of good luck.
“E-bikes just popped into my head,” David says. “It was an amazing idea… and I pursued it.”
Today, David is the proud owner and operator of “Haida Tide,” an independent e-bike rental and cultural tour experience on the north end of Haida Gwaii. He rents out six e-bikes to visitors who wish to visit Rose Spit, or just “the Spit,” a culturally and ecologically significant part of Haida Gwaii where it’s said the veil between the physical and non-physical world is very thin.
