I'm on Team Ellie! Ellie is my cousin's daughter: she just turned 15. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour in January 2018 and she's been fighting it ever since. #ShesGotThis

My Story

14 Jun 2019

This June, I am taking part again in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I'll be riding to support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

I'm still riding for my little cousin Ellie, and I've upped the stakes this year: I'll be trying to get to 800km. In the last year, Ellie's been through multiple surgeries and rounds of chemo. She and her family are in this for the long haul: it's the least I can do to put in the extra miles on my bike. Sure, I can't pedal her brain tumor away, but I can help raise money to fund the science that will kick its ass.

Please support me by making a donation!

Your support will change little lives.

  • Never give up. . . never surrender!
    20 Jun 2019

    68% of the way there. I gotta say though, that's a looooooong 250km I'm staring down.

    Today I left work a little early, but it was cloudy and threatening rain. So I decided to take a route that would allow me some bail-and-head-for-home possibilities if the sky opened. It didn't. So I rode across the Experimental Farm, along the canal, around Dows Lake, up the canal to the Corkstown Footbridge and across Laurier to the Adawe Crossing (still the most stop-and-admire beautiful footbridge in the city). Then back home along the Rideau River, peeling off at the brand-new Hurdman Station with a pause to admire the light rail trains (that are the source of bitter running jokes in this town) swosshing along with no one in them because the system's not open yet. From there along Alta Vista and home. The sky was clearing by the time I got home.

    I have to say that I love having the option, each day, to cut through 1,000 acres of farmland in the middle of the capital on my way to and from work. Friendly cows and fields of oats and haybales and tractors. And when you leave that, you can jump on a pedestrian/bike path that runs along a picturesque canal all the way to the Ottawa River. Ottawa, you pretty sometimes. Good thing. Because I have 250km more of you to ride this month.

    Never give up. . . never surrender!

  • To climbing and back
    10 Jun 2019

    Yesterday I didn't ride because I was going rock climbing, and I had a huge pack with all my climbing gear and a rope to deal with. But, one of my climbing partners suggested I could leave my pack with him overnight, because we were going climbing again today, and that way I could ride to his place, go climbing, then ride home (with the pack but at least minus the rope.)

    I really enjoyed the early morning ride downtown with no pack or anything. It only took me about 25 minutes. And for some reason (wait, because I need to Get More Kilometres In) I decided to take a longer than usual route home, with the pack, after a day of climbing.

    Do I get extra points for that? No? Okay then.

    Here's what my rides look like now, at 215 kilometres, on Day Nine. I'm a little behind my goal at this point but I can make it up, right?

  • Day One Down
    2 Jun 2019

    So this is what Day One looked like - just over 50km pulled down in the course of going downtown to man a table for Bike Ottawa at the Intergenerational Climate Picnic, then over to Vanier to check in on my friends' cats, then a long loop up past the Aviation and Space Museum and the RCMP Stables, and home again. Then off to South Keys to a friend's for the night. 50km down. 750 to go.
