My Story

6 Apr 2019

April 6/2019

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

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

If possible, please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

    June 30th - Last day of the 2019 GCC. Met my goals!! Thank you so much to everyone who donated to Kid’s Cancer Care by sponsoring my ride and also for cheering me on during the month of June. Ralph rode many of the km. with me this year as well as my team mate Linda Hobson and I rode many of our km. in the beautiful areas in and around Bragg Creek.

  • Ymir / Salmo, B.C.
    28 Jun 2019

    Road the rail trail to Salmo from Ymir and came back along the highway. The gravel on the rail trail was a little soft at times for my tires that are a little skinnier and not as knobby as mountain bike tires. The trail follows the river. Very pretty. Did not take pictures unfortunately other than when we stopped under a tree to wait out a rain shower.

  • Trail of the Coeur d’Alenes
    27 Jun 2019

    This beautiful 44km ride put me at 504km. Yahoo ... km. goal achieved for 2019. This trail actually runs all the way from the Washington border through Idaho to the Montana border. We only rode a very small portion of it. Total length is 72 miles. The section we chose was very picturesque along the lakeshore. Heyburn State Park to Gray’s Meadow return.

  • Route of the Hiawatha
    27 Jun 2019

    Great ride today on the Old Milwaukee Rail to Trail in Idaho. We decided to start in Pearson and ride the trail up and back, thus doing the 1.66 mile, St Paul Pass tunnel, twice. There are about 10 tunnels and 7 high trestles. The most surprising event in the second longest tunnel, was Ralph’s headlamp picking up the reflection of a deer’s eyes coming towards him. We certainly weren’t expecting to see a deer in the blackness. A good day. 48.5 km. In total which is now putting me within 40 km. of my 500 km. goal. Will not stop at 500km., but will continue to ride right through until the end of June, weather permitting. This seems like a good time to thank everyone for your donations to Kids Cancer Care. I really appreciate you sponsoring me this year. With gratitude .... Shirley

    25 Jun 2019

    Rode 43 km. of this 44 mile (return) trail. A couple of light rain showers but overall not too bad weather. Saw a cob, pen and cygnets along the way. iPhone pic is not great as the swans were a ways out and it was raining.

    Got half my ride in before the storm hit. Enjoyed lunch at Motto with GCC biking partner, Linda Hobson while the sky opened up. Not long after the sun was out again for us to finish up today’s ride.

    Only time for a short ride as we are puppy sitting our grand puppy for a few days. Tired her out playing chuck it so that we could leave her sleeping while we got a bike ride in.

    Ralph had a black bear run across the road in front if him on the road up to Fawn Hills. Not sure what I was looking at since I missed the whole thing.

    On the way back we rode through Lower Elkana and saw a doe and her fawn. At first we thought it had just been born but when the Mom got spooked the fawn jumped up pretty quick and was pretty stable in its legs.
