My Message

I'm cycling 1800 km across Canada!

I was due to cycle 600km from Toronto to Montreal in August, but then Covid happened. Instead our group is doing a coast-to-coast virtual ride over 90 days starting May 11. We’re cycling “from” St. John’s “to” Vancouver and back again along the the Trans Canada Trail. That’s 13,900 km each way and my personal commitment is to contribute at least 1800 km!

This event will benefit the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation and the thousands of people who rely on the funds raised for financial assistance, food bank parcels, meal delivery, therapeutic care, and other programs. Half of the Foundation’s budget comes from this ride so we can’t take the year off.

I’ll have to do some or all of the cycling indoors on a trainer. I find indoor cycling more difficult for long distances but the snack breaks are better and the washrooms are cleaner! I’m recovering well from my kidney surgery in March but I’m not ready to start serious outdoor cycling yet.

This is a difficult time to ask for money and I understand if you can’t give due to your own financial uncertainty. But if you are able to make a donation, there are people in need who would very much appreciate it.

I’ll keep you updated on my progress during the event between May 11 and August 8.

Thank you for your support!

PS: While the My Activity widget below shows my target as 600.3 km, I'm actually doing 1800 km.

No matter how big your calves get from the riding, they'll never be even close to the size of your heart. Thank-you for the opportunity to help a cause you believe in so deeply.
