My Message

Worldwide, 2 million new people are affected by HIV/AIDS every year. Of the 1,000 new transmissions in Ontario, only 4/5 are diagnosed, and only 2/3 result in treatment. 

The Bike Rally originated with just two dozen participants in 1999 as a 6-day, 600 km bike ride from Toronto to Montréal to raise desperately needed funds to support the services provided by the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA) to people living with HIV/AIDS (PHAs). Now in its 22nd year, it has grown into the sustaining fundraiser benefiting PWA.

These are difficult times, an unprecedented situation. We are being challenged in ways we never thought possible. Let's continue to take care of each other and those we love. PWA is committed more than ever to ensure that clients have access to food, financial assistance, harm reduction, and connections to additional necessary services in the community.

Unsurprisingly, this year's Bike Rally as an entirely virtual event. We can't train and then cycle 600km to Montréal together, but we have taken up the #Rally600 90-Day Challenge.

My Activity:  A commitment to complete a minimum of 4 one-hour / 20 km spin sessions on my trainer, plus at least one solo outdoor ride per week over these 13 weeks (May 11 to August 8, "Packing Day").

My goal: to exceed 600 km of training by 2,000 km. Accomplished!

My next goal: To ride 100 /- km per day over the 6 days of the Virtual Bike Rally, Aug 9-14.

.Accomplished: Day 1 at 102.5 km, done; Day 2 at 101.2 km, done; Day 3 at 108 km, done; Day 4 at 108.7 km, done; Day 5 at 101.9 km, done; Day 6 at 100.5 km, done; total 622.8 km!

Eli, Keep pedaling your butt off. After seeing you riding in sweats it appears you need to lose that tummy overhang! You are doing a wonderfully unselfish thing and. I congratulate you. The very best and thanks for setting the bar high.
