Wrapping things up

It’s taken me a few days to gather my thoughts about the National Kids Cancer Ride. To be honest it’s taken a few days to get my emotions in check as well. The Chase was an absolutely incredible experience for...

The Final Chapter

I need time.   Time to rest, time to recover, time away from my bike and especially time to reflect.   I’m looking out of the window of my WestJet flight at the Halifax airport waiting to go back home....

The Chase

The ride was over, but, like the end of the Return of the King, this adventure would have many small endings. Like weening off pain meds, it would be less painful breaking up the group if it was done gradually....

Shuttle

We’ve decided to shuttle the group forward. After Jeff, Rob and Erik got back from their section of the 17 towards Sudbury, we had a little meeting. We have a couple of conundrums… safety on this road is an issue....

Leg 15: Relaxed and bumpy

Henry, Morland and I had a funny, weird, interesting ride last night. We left just after 11:30pm from just north of the Sault. It was a pretty relaxed, chatty beginning of the ride… trivia going back and forth from Robert...
