Today was an awesome day. It was a glorious day to ride. It started cold, but with brilliant sunshine. We rode 85km from Fredericton towards St John New Brunswick, but had to cut our ride short due to detours and a time crunch to get to showers and the Digby ferry on time. Two more days remain in the 2019 NKCR. Tomorrow we ride from Lunenburg to Lower Sackville and it looks to be another glorious day. Then Saturday we are on to Peggy’s Cove and IWK before we wheel dip in the Atlantic at Point Pleasant Park.

The most important reason that it was the best day ever was our dedication this morning was for a survivor. Ollie was diagnosed with Hepatoblastoma, paedriatic liver cancer in August 2016. He went thorugh four cycles of chemotherapy and then surgery to shrink and extract the tumor. After that, another six cycles of chemotherapy. He completed treatment in February 2017. When he completed treatment, he and his sister had a party that they called the “No Cancer Dance”. It doesn’t get much more awesome than that.
