Wow, Thanks New Era!

It only takes a few kids with big hearts to make a difference.

My son currently attends an inner-city French Immersion school. The student council heard that he would be riding across Manitoba and Saskatchewan with Cyclebetes and wanted to help make a difference.

Enter the "Can-Do" spirit.

The kids planned and executed a great event, raising well over $400 and helping to get kids (and their parents) aware of this disease. I was invited to talk at the school before the walk...it was great. The kids were attentive and so interested in the story of Cyclebetes and what we accomplished in our first year. I shared the awesome photos from Carey Tarr and the experiences of life on the road for 12 days as I participated in the journey from Montreal to the foothills of Western Alberta.

I also got to share this video my sons and I created for all the Superheros out there:

We are now well on our way to our goal of raising $5000 for Juvenile Diabetes for this ride...thanks New Era!

Training Officially Underway

I'm now back on the bike and trying to keep up over 200kms a week. I have some winter weight to shed...I'm starting from behind the gun at 205lbs this year.
