Great Cycle Challenge :: My Ride

my-rideI am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge this June to fight kids’ cancer! Because right now, 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer across Canada every year. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it. So I am raising funds to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to continue its work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.


I am dedicating this ride to Kevin Abrams. Kevin, my nephew, died of brain cancer at the age of nine in 1985 after a long but brave battle. Barely a day goes by that I don’t think about the little guy. It is in his memory I dedicate this. I’m cycling for you. Kevin. And all the other children who are fighting cancer, have won the battle, or have lost the battle.


I’ll be riding every day of June: 30 days. My route will be the seawall around Stanley Park. Start point and end point will be our home in the West End. I’ll be lapping the park three times in the morning and three times in the evening, for a total of 6 laps. For the month of June, 180 laps. At 10km per lap, this works out to 1800km for the month challenge: plus 120km to cycle to and from the park home (@ 2km per ride). A grand total of 1920km, or 1193 miles! I’ve attached a map that shows the route. I’ve also attached a video of the ride: not my video.
