My Story

1 Aug 2022

So - I did it again! Back for my third year to raise funds for the kiddos. Last year I rode the majority of my kms on my trainer due to a bummed ankle. My ankle is finally at a stage where I can confidentially ride outside more so this year I hope to incorporate more outdoor rides (but sometimes weather and safety make riding the roads problematic). So that makes the trainer a great alternative.

I’m going to commit to 1000kms of riding. That’s just a little over 30kms each day/7 hrs a week of riding. I’m hoping to raise $2 for each km I ride.

Please consider supporting me for this great cause. My daughter is a nurse at SickKids so I have first hand knowledge of how awesome this amazing hospital is. It depends on events like this to continue providing help to the kiddos.
