Ride to Conquer Cancer 2014
I am riding again in this year's Ride to Conquer Cancer June 7-8. For those not familiar with the ride, it is a 200 km ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls, split over the Saturday and Sunday. Yes there are other directions now that you can take, but I’m going to stick with the classic route that I did in 2010 and 2011. It really is an incredible experience to be out with a group of several thousand riders, all pedaling to support the work of Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world.
I'm dedicating this year's ride to my Dad, who lost his battle with colon cancer this past February. Help support this great cause by donating at the link below.
Funds raised in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at Princess Margaret.
For those of you with a keen eye for bikes, you will notice that the bike to the left is my classic Rocky Mountain road bike. My son Brett has inherited it, and is now commuting 2-3 times a week to my office where he is working this summer. I’ll be running my Cervelo, but I wouldn’t be surprised if I don’t mix it up again and add some additional miles to the front and/or back of this year’s ride for old time’s sake.
