“I do not want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”
– Diane Ackerman
This is not my first long distance bike ride, but it will be my longest. I have been training for more than 6 months. I have reworked my route a few times to be as safe as possible during this pandemic. My daughter and her brave cat will be driving the support vehicle throughout this trip. On June 28th we will begin driving to the starting point: Cluff Lake Mine. Roughly 3 weeks and 2000 km from there I’ll dismount at the finish line in Stoney Rapids.
So that you can take part in this journey with me, I will be posting regular updates on the Padre Bike Ride Facebook Page.
Here’s a taste of my updates:
A donation of $195 provides a wheelchair to someone in desperate need.
