I'm Riding For


My son Wyatt has been dealing with Cancer and all things involved for 2 years now. He is making progress and has been so strong. I am almost 64 and wasn’t going to do this again! Here I go.

My Story

This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

    I saw ducks with babies in a pond, geese too. Antelope, pump jacks, trucks loading oil, 4 nice campsites ( missed the hail around us one night we were sheltered by trees and a cookhouse which my bike was in thankfully) and an old wagon.

    Toured small towns of Castor, Hanna, Brooks ( aqueduct), Vulcan ( Star Trek town) and Lethbridge, Japanese gardens.

    My husband came along with a van and checked on me occasionally and made me meals (no weight loss here!).

    Back home, I have more riding to do so, short trips around the area on calm sunny days.

    Rode half way to Lethbridge. I’m a bit OCD and counted refundable containers in my side of the ditch(290 in the first 70 km). 8 herds of cattle. One bunch who came over to greet me (Courtney and Ross). Day 2 , I met or was passed by 106 vehicles ( most pulled over, thank you). Then further south the winds grew stronger and I was meeting huge trucks of cattle and wind tower loads (a huge waste of taxpayers money but that’s another blog).
